Patient Transport Service
In 2014, Maldivian Red Crescent expanded it’s existing services to the public by providing patient transport service for residents of Male’ City. The main objective of this programme is to provide an effective ambulance service for the densely populated Greater Male' Area . This project was implemented with the assistance from Singapore Red Cross.
To effectively provide this service, MRC has trained volunteers on First Aid and moving and lifting patients. This service provides access for transporting patients that seek regular health care services such as elderly patients requiring regular health care services and transferring patients at times of emergencies. Unlike other ambulance services in Maldives which provides a door to door service, the service provided by MRC ensures that patients assisted are transferred from bed-to-bed.
The service is provided in Greater Male' Area operated with the use of a toll free number (1425) for service orders.
