Ambulance service provider to open Bristol hub
One of the largest providers of private ambulance services, E-zec Medical Transport, has opened a new hub in Bristol.
They have leased a 5,869 sq ft unit at Avonside Industrial Park in the St Philips area of the city with a 10-year lease.
E-zec Medical is one of the longest established and largest independent ambulance providers in the UK. They were recently awarded a contract by NHS Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group, NHS North Somerset CCG and NHS South Gloucestershire CCG to provide non-emergency transport services to Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire patients.
The service includes a dedicated call centre, control planning and despatch, road teams and a new vehicle fleet which will operate from the hub and other sites around the area.
Wayne Spedding, Director of Operations at E-zec Medical said: “This was a very smooth transaction from start to finish, which is testament to the landlord and their agents who acted promptly in order to meet our required occupational time-frames.”
Philip Cranstone, Associate in Cushman & Wakefield’s Bristol Industrial & Logistics team who completed the deal, commented: “We are pleased to have agreed this letting which will enable E-zec Medical to fulfill its NHS contracts. The location of Avonside Industrial Park has proven popular with a number of occupiers and there is currently just one unit remaining.
