AIR AMBULANCE

SOS DOCTORS assure the patients’ medical transport in Greece with specially adapted airplanes or helicopters escorted by a doctor and/or a nurse.

Call 1016 24 hours a day

With a call to our Coordination Center at 1016 24 hours a day, all actions for immediate and safe air ambulance transport in Greece begin.

Communication between SOS DOCTORS and the involved agencies

SOS DOCTORS contact the hospital/clinic where the patient is hospitalized. For air transport, it is imperative that all documents certifying the patient is able to travel by airplane and determining any specific air requirements (fit-to-fly documents) are completed. Our priority is patient safety and his transport according to the appropriate specifications. The SOS DOCTOR in charge of the medical transport is always in contact with the treating physician and keeps him informed.

Bed-to-bed Service 

A ground ambulance receives the patient from his/hers hospital bed and delivers him/her to the airplane crew. After the air ambulance transport, another ambulance will receive the patient to transfer him/her to the destination hospital. In other words, it is a bed-to-bed service that guarantees minimum inconvenience and maximum safetyduring the patient’s transport.

Ultra-modern aircraft – equipment

Our airplanes are specially adapted for air ambulance transports and have been certified by the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority. They have all the necessary state-of-the-art equipment for the safe transfer of the patient: monitor, defibrillator, oxygen bottle and respirator.

Experienced, specialized staff

During air ambulance transport, specially trained and highly experienced SOS DOCTORSor nurses are in attendance.


MEDICAL PATIENT ESCORT

SOS DOCTORS can also provide patient escort abroad on passenger planes.

With just a call at 1016 24 hours a day, a medical escort is coordinated and a specialized SOS DOCTOR remains at the side of the patient during the journey.

Prior to undertaking a medical escort, SOS DOCTORS contact the treating physician to be informed on whether the patient can travel and under what conditions (fit-to-fly documents).

The doctor has the equipment to deal with emergencies: cardiogram, intubation and defibrillation equipment.

The experience of SOS DOCTORS ensures patient safety during the journey.
