Call +302108212222, 24 hours a day
With a call to our Coordination Center at +302108212222, 24 hours a day, the procedure for immediate and safe air ambulance transport in Greece begins.
Communication between SOS DOCTORS and involved agencies
SOS DOCTORS contact the hospital/clinic where the patient is hospitalized. For air transport, it is imperative that all documents certify that the patient is able to travel by airplane and make sure any specific air requirements (fit-to-fly documents) are completed. Our priority is patient safety and 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.
A ground ambulance receives the patient from his/her 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 safety during the patient’s transport.
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 DOCTORS or nurses are in attendance.
