Receiving care can be stressful at the best of times, but for those suffering from a mental health illness we must uphold the highest quality in compassionate service at all times.
At iON Ambulance we are dedicated to delivering high standards of care to patients with a wide range of mental health illnesses. To achieve this, we provide a year-round, rapid-responsive, specialist team that are experienced at handling vulnerable patients and working with Mental Health Practitioners.
Our team have expertise in a safe and effective transfer of patients with paediatric & adolescent mental health illnesses, autism & Asperger's syndrome, dementia or detained under the Mental Health Act or Mental Capacity Act.
We meet all challenging behaviour safely and our staff are trained in breakaway techniques & control and restraint.
In partnership with Mental Health Practitioners, we take the time to get to know each patient’s needs to ensure secure and compassionate care during transfer across the UK. We are experienced in all kinds of patient transfer from typical outpatient appointments; or between low, medium and high secure psychiatric settings.
