Non Injury Falls Service

BM Ambulance falls team, based in Ashford Kent, asses and then correctly lifts people from the floor with the correct equipment, for patients who have fallen at home or place of care in the Kent area.  Our response times reduce workload on the front-line ambulances, also reducing stress and negative outcomes for the patient being left on the floor for prolonged periods of time.

BM Ambulance Falls Service offers ‘non injury fall lifting service’ for the Kent area. Our trained medical crew will do a full set of observations, a falls assessment and then if safe to do so leave the patient at home, contacting any referral or suitable support services that may be needed.

This reduces the burden on the NHS for non-injury falls freeing up front line emergency ambulances.  On acceptance of the call, our operations center will communicate with SECAmb and inform them that we are on-route an leave at home or convey to hospital in one of our cars or one of our front-line ambulances.
