NECTAR was officially launched as the ‘North East Children’s Transport and Retrieval’ Team in April 2016.Over the years we have grown and developed the service.
We have recently rebranded to become more inclusive of our patient population and changed our name to the ‘North East & Cumbria Transport and Retrieval’ team. This was done in 2021 after being commissioned to undertake adult transfers.
We are a 24-hour service providing high quality transport to patients of all ages. Our team have extensive experience & training in providing care to critically unwell patients. NECTAR is currently supporting the adult critical care network in the region of Yorkshire and Humber for adult transfers.Cases for outreach discussion
