In more serious cases, it is sometimes necessary to make arrangements for a patient to be relocated to a more suitable medical facility, in a neighbouring country or, in most cases, back to their country of origin.
CEGA offers a range of evacuation and repatriation services that are tailored to meet the individual patient's needs. The nature of the medical condition and the patient's location are determining factors when arranging repatriation transport and the type of medical escort required. Our staff are experts in the medical, regulatory and logistical processes involved and customise each transfer in the most suitable and cost-effective way possible.

Interpreters and translators provided from CEGA's 24/7 UK base
