Contracted Ambulance Service

Since 2017 Coastal Core Private Ambulance Service has successfully worked in partnership with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service and the Northern Ireland Health Care Trusts. We provide patient transport services to NIAS for contracted services and adhoc journeys. Patient transport services are aimed at patients with mobility needs who cannot travel easily by taxi. Through NIAS and the trusts we service the whole of Northern Ireland providing an exceptional service and patient centred care

The criteria for an Independent Ambulance Service to be selected and accepted by an NHS Trust is extremely detailed and robust. The inspection process is arduous and thorough and we as a private ambulance company are subjected to inspections by the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service. All our equipment is regularly maintained and recorded as such. MOTs, servicing schedules and deep cleaning regimes are very closely monitored and scrutinised.

All the staff on our Ambulances are trained and receive regular refresher training to ensure we retain high standards that the public deserve. We invest in our people and the future of our company. No compromise!

We pride ourselves on being a responsive overflow provider, able to provide additional support in response to peak demands.
