Collective Ambulances fall under the patient transport ambulances category and they are also known as conventional ambulances. They are vehicles designed for the collective transport of patients and they are equipped for the non-urgent, collective transport of patients who are not suffering from infectious/contagious diseases.
Unlike Individual Ambulances (A1), this type of vehicle, which is also known as A2, can transport up to eight seated patients. However, its versatility and space allow a stretcher to be added, meaning seven seated patients and one patient on a stretcher may be transported simultaneously.
This type of patient transport must have at least a driver in possession of a professional ambulance transport certificate, as outlined in Royal Decree 836/2012, of 20 May, and, when required by the service, a health assistant with the same certification.
Use of Collective Ambulances is frequent in transferring patients who require rehabilitation or dialysis treatment. Ambulancias Civera, S.L. has ambulances adapted to patients with reduced mobility and who require a wheelchair for their transfer.
