Level 2 and 3 Adult Transfers
EMRTS Cymru, working with the Wales Air Ambulance (WAA) Charity, is available to provide time-critical transfers for patients in Wales who need to move quickly between a District General Hospital and a specialist care facility.
The service for Level 2 and 3 transfers is operational 7 days per week, between the hours of 08:00 – 20:00.
The transfer will be undertaken by an EMRTS Cymru Consultant and Critical Care Practitioner.
What are the benefits?
Our transfer service ensures that patients are taken to the appropriate healthcare facility in a timely manner. They also reduce some of the pressure on hospital services in Wales by freeing up staff and Welsh hospital beds. It may reduce ambulance use for long-distance transfers.

The ASD can be accessed, between 08:00 and 20:00, by calling 0300 123 2301
