Pathfinder
Alternative to Transfer (Pathfinder) Service
In conjunction with the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust (NWAS), Mastercall provide an ‘alternative to hospital transfer service’ for patients in Stockport and Trafford who have phoned 999 but, after assessment by the ambulance crew, are deemed not needing onward transfer to hospital.

Instead of conveying the patient to the Emergency Department, NWAS will refer the patient to Mastercall’s Care Co-ordination Centre where our highly trained and experienced staff will provide clinical assessment either by phone, at our urgent care centre or in the patients own home.

The service aims to ensure patients receive the RIGHT CARE, in the RIGHT PLACE, at the RIGHT TIME by a clinician who can most appropriately meet their needs.

As well as providing immediate medical treatment following referral, the service will also co-ordinate care around the patients individual needs and circumstances to empower the patient to make best use of services and ensure that their continued needs are provided for.
The service is safe and effective and of referrals made to the service, 93% have been safely and appropriately managed without the need for conveyance to hospital thereby reducing the demand on the Emergency Department and a potential admission to hospital.
