Relay EMS


Relay EMS was founded in 2012 and is a private emergency medical care provider and operating in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropol, and surrounding areas from 3 regional bases (Port Elizabeth, Uitenhage and Coega IDZ).


For the past 5 years, Relay EMS has been providing patients with reliable, efficient and specialised emergency response and inter-hospital transfer services.


The success of the company to date is attributed to:

  • A full spectrum of medical response vehicles, fitted with the latest emergency medical response equipment, ensuring only the best emergency medical care is provided to patients


As one of the largest private emergency medical care providers in the region, Relay EMS operates from 3 bases in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropol to provide, the right people, the right training, the right equipment and the right response.


As time is often the difference between life & death, serious injury or speedy recovery, Relay EMS will dispatch the most appropriate medical emergency resource, to provide life-saving treatment and transport to the most suitable medical facility.


Contacting the 24-hour emergency call centre on 0861 061 061 ensures that the help from one of Relay EMS’s Rapid Response Vehicles (RRVs) and ambulances is only a few minutes away.


Relay EMS enhances its reach and reputation by being contracted with national service providers such as ER24 (a subsidiary of Mediclinic International) and Europ Assistance, as well as local business across industries and of varying sizes – no organisation is too big or too small to receive the right response.
