The roots of Medical Services Ltd can be traced back more than 30 years to the Harley Street Runners, a small courier company set up to serve the private medical community in London’s West End, known as “The Medical Mile”.
Through a series of changing owners, the Harley Street Runners became part of Lewis Day Transport Group plc which in 2003 launched Medical Services, a patient transport division alongside what by then had become Medical Couriers.
In the following years Medical Services and Medical Couriers was expanded to meet the growth in demand for our services from contracted NHS primary care trusts and the private healthcare sector.
In the spring of 2011, with the same management and control, Medical Services became an independent company, dedicated entirely to providing medical transport services and in the autumn the courier division was sold to enable a clear focus on patient transport services.
Today the company has a turnover of over £30million, a thousand employees and 600 registered ambulances operating from newly developed Centres of Excellence ambulance stations in Bow, East London, Alperton, West London, as well as Luton (Bedfordshire) and regional hubs in Warrington, Preston, Rochdale, Birmingham, Bristol and Swansea, Wales.
