St John Ambulance Paediatric and Neonatal Transfer

Paediatric and neonatal services

St John Ambulance is a leading provider of specialist paediatric and neonatal transport services across England.

We build, mobilise and equip dedicated ambulance crews, providing out-of-hospital care to babies and children, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We’re currently delivering specialist ambulance solutions for the following paediatric and neonatal transport networks:

  • ANTS – Acute Neonatal Transfer Service
  • CATS – Children’s Acute Transfer Service
  • NTS – London Neonatal Transfer Service
  • KIDS – Kids Intensive Care and Decision Support
  • SONeT – Southampton Oxford Neonatal Transport
  • STRS – South Thames Retrieval Service

Providing the highest standards of care and equipment

Our staff are skilled and committed professionals who specialise in working with babies and children. We tailor the shifts of our crews to align with the shifts and needs of your medical teams.

We’ve worked closely with paediatric clinicians to create new innovative specifications for the vehicles which specifically suit the needs of each contract, enabling a much better patient experience. All our box ambulances can facilitate two clinical staff to travel with and treat the patients in transit if necessary.


St John Ambulance has been working in partnership with the Acute Neonatal Transfer Service (ANTS) team at Addenbrooke’s Hospital since July 2015, providing 3 dedicated fully staffed vehicles, safely transporting acutely sick newborn babies requiring specialist care throughout the East of England.

'Working with the St John Ambulance operations team day to day has transformed the way we are able to work as a service.  St John Ambulance have proven themselves to be responsive, flexible and go above and beyond to deliver a quality service.'
