Patient Transport Service booking service

The North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) runs the telephone booking service for the Patient Transport Service for patients at this surgery.

To make or amend a booking with the Patient Transport Service (PTS) please call 0191 215 1515. Bookings can be made Monday to Friday, from 8am-6pm.

If you need to cancel a booking for the next working day call 0300 111 0247. If the cancellation is for a booking after the next working day, please call the 0191 215 1515 number.

The PTS is run by the North East Ambulance Service and provides pre-planned non-emergency transport for patients who have a medical condition that would prevent them from travelling to a treatment centre by any other means, or who require the skills of an ambulance care assistant during the journey.
