There are 3 sizes:-
SIZES are 190mm, 200mm. 210mm.
As a guide to help choose, if you cut out a strip of paper the length of the above sizes and wrap it round your wrist you can pick the size that fits best. The bands do stretch so they don't have to be bigger to go over your hand. . These are FREE to Q.E. Patients. If renal patients from other hospitals wish to purchase these they will cost £2.00 each plus 79p postage.
We are able to do this due to the generosity of all those who support our fundraising.

|The New Patient Transport Service started on the 1st May
West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (WMAS) has been awarded the five-year contract to deliver the Non Emergency Patient Transport Service (NEPT)|
The new contract offers a better quality of service for patients and W.M.A.S. have to deliver this.
The main changes that patients will see are:-
2. Give patients the option to provide patient feedback after each journey via SMS text message or email.
3. Patients should arrive for treatment 30 minutes before their appointed time and collected within 30 minutes after finishing treatment.
4. Patients should spend no more than 1 hour on a vehicle if they live within 15 miles of your dialysis unit.
5. Access to a wide range of ambulance vehicles to meet the medical needs of patients, including high dependency and bariatric patients.
6. A new patient charter, which will provide information on response times and what patients can expect
These are the main changes and improvements patients should now by aware of.
To help the K.P.A. monitor performance and how these changes are implemented we ask all the patients who use transport to inform us about how the service is working for them.
Please text, email or write to us. You can find us under CONTACTS The only way to make sure you get the service you need and deserve is to let us know.
Send details of how you get on with the service giving times, dates, and the journey details.
We look forward to a new service meeting our needs
