Workplace Infectious Patient Transport (WIPT)

Colbrow Medics provides transport services for people who are suspected or confirmed as carrying an infectious disease. Our clinicians wear appropriate PPE such as masks and gowns and collect unwell employees, contractors, visitors or guests and drive them to their home or doctor before completing the required high level of cleaning of vehicle.

We support workplaces and venues to provide an alternative transport option for people who do not require an emergency ambulance but have no suitable transport options to travel from the workplace or venue to their home or doctor. The most common request for this service is for patients who may be carrying a highly infectious disease but would normally travel to and from work on public transport.

Taxis will often decline to transport sick people. Avoid having to ask one of your staff to drive an infectious person home. Public transport should be avoided by all people who are contagious.

Workplace Infectious Patient Transport (WIPT) includes:
  • Provision of a Medic trained driver with appropriate PPE
  • Vehicles cleaned and disinfected to government standards before and after each transport
  • Services available on retainer, contract or ad-hoc requirements
  • Provide a detailed travel itinerary including confirmation of all flights and transfers
