Medical Repatriation

When a European Economic Area (EEA) national living in the UK falls ill or becomes injured, the EHIC card usually entitles them to treatment from the NHS or HSE in the Republic of Ireland.

In some cases, healthcare professionals will make the decision to transport the patient back to their home country for treatment, as the resulting cost for the NHS can be substantial and in many cases, exceed the cost of the air ambulance service.

For many years, IAS Medical has been working closely with the NHS to safely transport EEA nationals to their home country. We specialise in the NHS repatriation of foreign nationals, operating air ambulance services from the UK to countries across Europe.

We operate air ambulance flights to all major European countries, including:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Canary Islands
  • Cyprus
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Luxembourg
  • Netherlands
  • Portugal
  • Spain
  • Switzerland
  • Turkey

As a medical repatriation specialist, we pride ourselves on offering unparalleled care for our patients. We have dedicated medical teams who are fully trained and experienced in caring for patients with many different injuries and illnesses. We make the patient’s health our priority, ensuring their comfort and safety throughout the entire journey.

Unlike some other air ambulance companies, we have access to a range of aircrafts, so we can select the most suitable option based on the patient’s needs and the length of the journey. We often use the King Air 200 aircraft for NHS repatriations in Europe. For more information on the aircraft, please visit our dedicated King Air 200 page.

Our reliable and professional medical repatriation service has been trusted by many NHS authorities and trusts. To find out how much our NHS repatriation air ambulance services will cost based on your patient’s requirements and the journey required, contact us for a quote.
