Abstract

The non-emergency patient transport system (NEPT) in Victoria, Australia evolved out of an identified need in the latter part of the 20th century. This system is growing and maturing as the health system evolves. The emergency and non-emergency systems will slowly diverge over time as the needs and responsibilities of the two systems further develop. This paper discusses the evolution of the non-emergency patient transport system (ambulance) in Victoria and its current role in the health system in Victoria Australia.
