Ambulance Service Provider – Patient Transport and Event Medical Cover Solutions

An opportunity to acquire a Care Quality Commission registered provider of Patient Transport and Event Medical Cover Solutions.

Based in the Home Counties UK, the company delivers patient care, first aid and transport for clients in the private sector and the NHS. The business has built a varied client base serving multiple ambulance services across the UK as well as working directly with hospitals and also with organisers of private events.

Established in 2012 the business has been developed with a vision to prioritise patient care within the private health sector. Led by the core principles of providing qualified, skilled and caring staff using leading-edge equipment, the company has experienced steady growth in reputation and market share.

The company’s operating bases have all the facilities expected of a leading ambulance service provider including on-site mechanics and the latest cleaning facilities.

The company can cater for any event requirement, ranging from a solo First Aider all the way up to a multi-disciplinary team of registered healthcare professionals based in a medical centre, supported by ambulances and customised response units.

It also caters for any type of patient transfer, with front line response ambulances with everything customers would expect to find on an NHS equivalent, including a Paediatric Transporter. All services are backed up by a market leading drug formulary, including the full range of controlled drugs.

Growth to-date has been organic. The potential acquisition offers clearly identified opportunities for scale through (a) the expansion of the existing service offering to other NHS Trusts and private care providers and (b) a move into additional services, for example blue light ambulance services for its NHS clients. This is not a retirement sale and the vendor is willing to remain within the business to assist in its growth.
