SCAS clarify arrangements for care home patient transport

Ambulance with rear doors open
Following on from the letter dated 28 October from South Central Ambulance Service, which caused some confusion on whether SCAS staff were allowed in and what care home staff responsibilities should be, SCAS has issued an update on their arrangements for patient transport into and out of care homes.
We can confirm that processes are in place to mean that SCAS NEPTS staff will be compliant with [mandated vaccination] regulations. All SCAS NEPTS crew will continue to wear level 2 PPE, adhere to social distancing and clean down requirements as per current covid requirements.
