In the 2013/14 financial year how much money did you spend on providing patient transport?
How much of this was spent with private companies?
Please provide me with the name of the largest private provider of patient transport to your trust in the last financial year, and how much you spent with them?
• The Trust spent £2.7m on patient transport, excluding taxis.
• The Trust has a contract with West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust which provided the majority (£2.6m) of our services.
• Details of taxi costs are unavailable, as invoices are not held at a level which allows us to split staff and patient usage out.
• Therefore we are unable to accurately confirm the largest individual private provider of patient transport. As I say, however, it is going to be relatively immaterial give our £2.6m NHS contract.
