Cleanliness of vehicles; Vehicles look like they have not been washed or cleaned in weeks, dirty with smelly odours.
All of our patient transport services vehicles are cleaned at the end of each shift with a deep clean once a week. If there are unseen circumstances we provide a replacement vehicle to continue with the rest of journeys.
