      Angry Medical transportation for my father

      Hi,

      My parents where on a holiday in Italy three weeks ago and they where perfectly fine until they got an car accident aftermy father got a stroke. My mother was in shock but didn't have real medical issues. Unfortunately that couldn't be said of my father. Not only did he have the negative effects of the stroke, he also had other medical issues that are very bothersome. Now that my father is in a bit of a stable condition we want him to get back to the UK. We(as a family) don't really know how to get the transportation done. The hospital in Italy knows about our struggle and said that medical escort is needed for the transportation. They didn't tell us how to arrange this. So we googled and found some organisations that could help us with this difficult situation. We don't know if these organisations are trustworthy and if these organisations can transport my father without complications. Maybe someone knows more about the organisations that provide these services or maybe someone has experienced a similar situation.

      If so, I hope to hear from you.

      Hello,

      I wanted to say that the transportation for my parents has been done and that my father is now recovering in a hospital in the UK for almost two weeks now. The transportation of my parents was arranged by AMBU-TRANS (ambu-trans.eu). They helped us out and provided a good ride back to the UK. The family is very happy that the situation is solved and that our family members are back here in the UK.

      Hi Jack

      Thanks for letting us know your parents are safely back and also the name of the company you used.

      I was going to suggest ringing up some medical insurance companies to ask who they use - but glad to hear the transport went well.

      Best wishes to your dad and hope he makes a full recovery :)
