A little history of Phoenix

Phoenix has a long trading history, starting in May 1983 as a franchise under the Sovereign Services banner, one venture out of a total of 13 franchises which covered the UK from Scotland to Cornwall. Originally the businesses were based around the catchment areas of major airports, since the business model involved repatriation of people who had severe mobility difficulties or illness and who needed to be met at their local airport and taken home or to a hospital/clinic

 

Sadly this business model proved unworkable and, 18 months later, Leamington was one of two surviving franchises which then both changed their modus operandi to the more general carriage of persons in wheelchairs and re-equipped with new wheelchair– accessible ambulance vehicles.

 

The Leamington company also changed its name from Sovereign Services to Phoenix Private Ambulance Service and its fleet grew to 3 vehicles, which over time were variously based on Talbot Express, Mazda 2200D, Toyota Hiace, Ford Escort, Citroen Despatch and Renault Master.

 

Phoenix Private Ambulance is now focused on being able to provide both stretcher and wheelchair transport, so the fleet is all specially-converted long-wheelbase Renault Master or Peugeot Boxer vans, of the type and style used by NHS ambulance services, as well as other private ambulance businesses across the country.
