Private healthcare firm signs Uber deal
Cera said it had made a deal with Uber to transport its London-based carers to their patients in their home.
In a statement broadcasting the deal with Uber, a speaker from Cera stated: “The partnership will enable Cera’s London-based carers to use Uber to get to the people they are caring for as swiftly and seamlessly as possible.”
“It will also give those who need care the freedom to book cars so they can leave their houses when they would otherwise would have been housebound, or had to rely on someone else.
A former doctor, said the Uber deal would “drastically integrate care and transport through technology”, They also said: “Those less abled will now have access to the highest-quality drivers, while carers will be able to efficiently travel to ensure they can deliver services in the right place at the right time.”
However, Uber do not have contracts to provide emergency and non-emergency travel. This means that when patients need assistance when getting to the hospital in an emergency transport in the form of ambulances and medi-cars driven by medically trained experts will be provided.
