Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMMH) have worked with 365 Response since 2016 to ease the pressure of booking mental health transport. The Trust can have short notice requirements for long distance mental health journeys up to three times per day, previously resulting in the time-consuming task of contacting multiple providers for quotes. Since joining the growing list of Trusts using the eProcure Digital Marketplace from 365 Response, GMMH no longer need to set aside hours of time to manage the transport booking process.
The main benefit of working with 365 Response is the ease of having someone else taking away the time-consuming part of your job. I know that I can just call with all of the information and trust that I’ll get a quick response to fulfil my requirements.

The 365 Response eProcure Digital Marketplace manages a large volume of transport providers to suit a range of requirements and is supported by a dedicated team of account managers. Working with GMMH, we provide a very high coverage rate for mental health journey bookings.
When we’re booking our transport, we have a number of other duties to do at the same time, so it could take us a couple of hours. By sending the work to 365 Response, I can get dedicated support and I know my requirements will usually be sorted within the hour, saving me time to focus on bed management and other important tasks.
