Infection Information

I have an infection; can I still travel with Yorkshire Ambulance Service?

Yes. We have procedures in place to reduce the risk of cross-transmission from one patient to another and from a patient to a member of staff.

You may be cared for by a member of staff who may be wearing gloves and/or an apron. The wearing of these items is to reduce the risk of cross-transmission.

If you are booking your own transport and have any of the infections below or undiagnosed diarrhoea and/or vomiting then it is important for you to:

  • inform the area you are travelling to, eg clinic
  • inform ambulance staff when booking transport
  • inform ambulance staff who attend to you

Information is available on several infections by clicking on the links below:

Meticillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureas (MRSA)
Clostridium difficile (Cdiff)
