On 27 March the National Health Service released guidance to reflect changes in patient transport services during the COVID-19 response. As the NHS returns to a business as usual position further amendments to the guidance have been made and are due to be published shortly. NHS trusts and clinical commissioning groups will implement this guidance locally to provide appropriate levels of service going forward.
