Dear NHS England,

How many times per week do lancashire care trusts use private ambulances for non emergencies/mental health hospital transfers?

What was the total spend on non emergency or mental health hospital transfers in the past 12 months to November 2017?

Who is currently providing this service to the trusts?

Are there contracts,if they exist when are they up for renewal?

Yours faithfully,

Commissioning Groups (CCGs). If you need advice about accessing secondary
care, you should contact your local CCG. You can find their contact

Dear Sir or Madam,

 

Re:      Freedom of Information request (Our Ref: FOI-054956)

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information (FOI) request dated 20 November
2017.

 

Your exact request was:-

 

“How many times per week do lancashire care trusts use private ambulances
for non emergencies/mental health hospital transfers?

 

What was the total spend on non emergency or mental health hospital
transfers in the past 12 months to  November 2017?

 

Who is currently providing this service to the trusts?

 

Are there contracts,if they exist when are they up for renewal?”

 

NHS England does not hold this information.

 

It may help if we explain that the NHS is not a single organisation but is
made up of a range of organisations such as Hospitals, Clinical
Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Ambulance Trusts. NHS England is
responsible for commissioning primary care services such as GP and dental
surgeries, as well as some specialised secondary care services. Therefore,
any recorded information NHS England may be able to provide in response to
an FOI request will generally relate to the services NHS England
commissions. For information on commissioned services and the types of
information NHS England holds can be found on our [1]website and
[2]publication scheme. For further information on the NHS, its structure
and other NHS organisations please refer to NHS Choices [3]here.

 

As such, we advise that you redirect your request to the relevant
individual NHS Trusts. You can contact individual trusts using the contact
details indicated in the link provided below:
