Mental Health / Secure Transport

BM Ambulance Service transports patients detained under the Mental Health Act. Our mental health vehicles are fitted with Home Office Category B cells and choice of seating layouts suited to the conversation and assessment on contact. We always deliver a quality, patient focused service that is always safe and secure.  We deliver services using a dedicated mental health team consisting of specifically trained staff and purpose built vehicles.  Please click this link to see the 3D model of one of our secure vans.
