Stop Comcabs using the overflow drop-down seats in taxis for Patient Transfer

The short-sighted specification by DHSC permitting Comcabs to use these awful, hard rear-facing seats betrays their ignorance as to care of patients and their carers. Fine for young people on a short journey on a night out but quite unsuitable for Patient Transport. Bridgewater were excellent and used the correct vehicles without any complaints.  The high number of problems with Comcabs could have been avoided had DHSC listened to those who used the service. 

Why the contribution is important

The cost of  DHSC staff having to deal with these complaints costs far more than the £27/day saving they hope to made. Suggest that only forward facing seats are used in Comcab Taxis, or preferrable scrap the contract as a major mistake and look again at how vulnerable sick patients are transported - traditional taxis are NOT the answer.
