You may choose to apply for an approval in principle (AIP) before submitting your non-emergency patient transport service (NEPT) licence application. You can then ensure you fulfill all NEPT conditions before financial outlay.

Revisions to the NEPT Regulations in 2021 and the inaugural licensing of the commercial First Aid sector will raise the standards of quality and safety for patients and staff in both settings.

Licencing and regulation of the first aid sector will replace stand-by accreditation of NEPT licence holders. Stand by will no longer exist in the remade NEPT regulations.
