Medical Services (North East) Limited have recently invested over £140 000 purchasing two brand new bariatric ambulances and equipment after some obese patients have had to wait up to a week to be discharged from the regions hospitals. A one ton electric winch assists in the loading and unloading of the Megasus bariatric stretcher, specialist seating, air conditioning, heating system and privacy glass all add to the patient experience and comfort. Wayne Hall, Managing Director says, " A surge in the number of requests for help from hospitals across the region for transportation of very large patients has prompted the latest move. The new ambulances can carry patients who weigh up to 50 stone offering a safe and dignified transport solution to those whose weight, or condition, require more specialist transport. We appreciate that delays in discharge can cost hospitals thousands of pounds while blocking beds and that is something we can now help with at short notice."
