Embrace staff loading ambulance

Embrace is a highly specialist, round-the-clock transport service for critically ill infants and children in Yorkshire and the Humber who require care in another hospital in the region or further afield.

If you need to make a referral to Embrace, or need further specialist advice, please ring the referral hotline on 0845 147 2472.

Our call handlers will then put you in contact with the Embrace Consultant and relevant specialists as required.

The acute call medical control form gives you a clear understanding of the structure of the referral process and the information you will be asked by the Embrace team.

For planned transfers, please use an Embrace planned transfer booking form, which should be printed, completed and faxed to Embrace. The referral will then be triaged and a transport plan agreed and communicated to you.

Guidelines and other documents

We have a series of clinical guidelines which have been written to support clinical teams accessing Embrace. These are a synthesis of best practice used both nationally and in the region. The overall responsibility for the decisions taken in regard to the individual patient concerned remains that of the referring healthcare professionals.

Other Embrace documents including hospital directions, forms and reports are also available to download below.

ODN review day

Event invitation for Embrace review day

We’re holding a service review on 20 May from 10am to 4pm and inviting clinical staff of all roles to come along. We’ll be asking looking at the past, present and future and getting feedback from clinicians on the following areas:

  • Is the joint PIC/NIC model right for Y&H?
  • What is working and what needs to change?
  • What do you want from Embrace & the Networks?

If you can’t make it on the day please respond to our survey via SurveyMonkey here.

To register for attendance email ODN_Education@sch.nhs.uk
