Patient Transport Officers (PTOs) provide a high standard of care and transportation of non-emergency patients between health-care facilities, clinics and private residences.

This involves liaison with other RFDS team members, Ambulance and health-care employees, patients and the general public to undertake timely, safe and patient centric transportation services.

PTOs may work as part of a two member crew on low, medium and high acuity transports across metropolitan Melbourne or regional Victoria. They may also work on their own as a single officer providing clinic car or hoist transports.
