Multi Transfer Vehicle
St John's Multi Transfer Vehicle is a specially built vehicle designed to provide a reliable, cost effective solution for non-emergency patient transfers between the South West and Perth metropolitan area.
It is the first of its kind in Australia and will operate Monday - Thursday, servicing two round trips per day.
The Multi Transfer Vehicle can accommodate five stretchers, four seated patients and one wheelchair. It is staffed by two patient transfer officers and one paramedic at any given time, however this set up is flexible and can be changed based on the patient's requirements.
The MTV is aimed to service non-critical patients who require medical transport. This includes patients who:
- Need to be cared for during transport.
- Patients who are in a stable condition.
- Those who require a stretcher, wheelchair, oxygen or the skills of an ambulance paramedic.
There has been an increasing need for a cost effective, road based patient transfer solution between Perth and the South West. The Multi Transfer Vehicle provides the opportunity for patients to access an efficient service that meets their medical needs at a reduced cost compared to a single patient transfer vehicle. The Multi Transfer Vehicle allows patients to travel to their destination in comfort and safety with clinical support.
