South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) has a very successful Commercial Department, which has Board representation and an approved strategy to generate income through the provision of:
- Patient Transport Services, including excellent bariatric capabilities
- Logistics Services - delivering and collecting items such as medical records, pathology specimens, patient medical records and mail; and providing a staff shuttle service in East Berkshire
- GP Out of Hours - Call Handling and GP driving services
- Commercial Training - First Aid at work and Emergency First Aid courses, including Advanced Levels
For the Commercial Services Department, these are core services provided by dedicated teams focused on providing quality patient care and high quality services.
Within our core business we understand the importance of integrated mobile healthcare as a responsive service based on patient needs.
The Commercial Services Department has at its heart the provision of managed services to other NHS organisations and private healthcare providers. We have a proven track record and are currently a trusted provider of cost effective and innovative business solutions across the South Central region and surrounding counties.
We always take into account the requirements of both the commissioners and local service users, but also the environmental and patient agenda to provide cost effective services fit for purpose.
