High Dependency

E-zec specialise in transporting High Dependency Unit Patients (HDU).

To ensure we meet the expectations of HDU departments, our first priority is to engage with the relevant healthcare teams to understand their requirements.

E-zec’s specially trained ‘High Dependency’ crews and ambulances provide enhanced clinical care during inter-hospital transfers. Our ambulances are equipped with defibrillator monitors, suction units, resuscitation bags, maternity packs, pain relief, oxygen, spinal boards, scoops, carry chairs and infection control kits.

HDU teams are also periodically assessed ensuring consistent, high standards of service and safety. We also operate modern, fully equipped long wheel-base ambulances equipped to ‘front line’ specification. This enables us to transfer any patient, regardless of their mobility category, to and from specialist units.
