Dear Priory Group Limited,

I am writing to request information regarding use of patient transport that has been unable to be facilitated by in house or NHS ambulance services due to level of risk, journey distance etc.

1). Could you please provide the name (or names) of transport services used (outside of NHS ambulance services or in house services) for secure/non-secure patient transfers/transport (excluding taxi's). Also, is there a contractual agreement with said companies and, if so, what are the details of such an agreement?

2). What has been the annual cost on private transport excluding taxi's (i.e. private ambulance, secure ambulance etc) from 1/1/16 to present day

3). How many times have private transport companies been used since 1/1/16

Yours faithfully,

Philip Parkinson
