The Nelson Marlborough Health patient travel team arranges the transport of patients between its facilities.

Wairau, Nelson, Golden Bay & Murchison transfers

Non-acute patients transferring between Wairau and Nelson Hospitals travel by St John ambulance.

Transferring to another district

If a patient is physically able to take a commercial flight, the patient travel team will book the flight and arrange shuttle transfers to and from the airport.

Patients who are unable to take a commercial flight will be transferred by the Lifeflight air ambulance. This is arranged by Nelson Hospital.
