Ambulance services

St John Ambulance provides emergency and non-emergency ambulance services to people in the Northern Territory.

Emergency services

Ambulance crews are available 24 hours a day to respond to critical and emergency cases from bases in Darwin, Palmerston, Katherine, Nhulunbuy, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs.

Non-emergency patient transport

St John Ambulance's patient transport services take patients between home and hospitals and other medical facilities like nursing homes. 

This ensures emergency ambulance crews are available for critical and emergency cases. 

They have specialty vehicles that can transport wheelchairs and heavy patients, and extra seats for additional passengers like friends, family or guardians.

Ambulance cover

The cost of an emergency ambulance is based on a callout fee and a per kilometre fee.

If you are a member of St John Ambulance or your private health fund includes ambulance cover you won't have to pay.

A St John Ambulance subscription also gives you free emergency transport in any state or territory in Australia.
