A recent study suggests a way that the NHS can be used to deliver more patient transport to patients in a more efficient and cost-effective way.
The paper, by a team from the University of Reading, looked at a scheme in which transport for a patient was provided to them in the NHS as part of their care, and how they could transfer their care to other healthcare providers.
It found that this is often the only way that a patient can travel safely and affordably to their preferred care provider, as long as they have a transport provider who is able to transport them.
“A few providers have been using the NHS to help people travel safely,” the researchers said in their paper published in the BMJ.
But there are currently only a handful of providers in the UK that can transport patients safely and cost effectively.
One of them is the Royal College of Surgeons, which is able in some cases to do so, but it does so only on the NHS.
There are also two other providers of care-based transport: the British Transport Police, which can take patients to a GP, and the NHS Hospitals Association, which handles the paperwork and insurance for patient transport.
A third provider is NHS Hospice, which provides free transport to some people.
To help patients get around the country safely and efficiently, the researchers say it would be great if more healthcare providers were able to help them, so they can get on with the care they need.
They point to a case study from the British College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, where an obstetrician had to take an elderly patient to a private hospital in Glasgow, because of the lack of transport.
The researchers also looked at cases where people had to be taken to hospital because of a problem with their health care provider.
That is not necessarily a problem for the NHS, but the researchers found that the healthcare provider could be doing more than just being an ambulance service, or having a paramedic, or even a GP.
Instead, the study found that they were in fact delivering care, either for the patient or their carers.
For example, a patient could be taken from hospital to hospital in a car that was rented by the NHS or a private company, and then a healthcare provider would take the patient back to their home.
For other patients, the healthcare providers would be the transport providers, who would drive them to the hospital.
The study also looked into how the transport network works and found that transport is not just a simple matter of “parking” a patient in the hospital car.
Rather, it’s a complex issue.
In the UK, healthcare providers need to take care of the patient’s needs for several days before they can transport them to a destination.
As the researchers wrote in their report: “There are some providers, such as GP surgeries and hospitals, who provide care for a range of conditions, and who may need to make a trip to the nearest hospital to meet patients who are not urgent or who are travelling in a group, for example to a care home.”
In many cases, the transport is free, but a transport company will charge a fee to the patient, so the healthcare group needs to be able to pay that fee.
The researchers say that the government should consider expanding the healthcare sector so that more providers can be able provide transport services, and help the NHS in the future.
“We believe that there are other ways that the UK can be transformed to deliver care to more people at lower cost, and that the health service should continue to play a vital role in that process,” they wrote.
“We also believe that the private sector should be encouraged to offer transport as a service to the public sector, rather than as a monopoly.”
