Here at E-zec we are very proud of our long history – the company is now in its twentieth year of providing a high quality NEPT service to our NHS trust partners and patients.

The business was started in 1998 by Paul and Derek, with only one vehicle undertaking many journeys working with various insurance companies, repatriating people who had become ill whilst on holiday abroad. Reinvesting all of the profit made back into the business, E-zec soon established a foothold in the Non Emergency Patient Transport Service (NEPTS) which quickly saw the business and workforce grow.

I started with E-zec in October 2018, they are a company that are always continuing to look for new ways to support their crews and are supportive of progression. With myself since joining E-zec I have become a qualified Mental Health First Aider, they also keen to support management with training courses so we are continuing to learn to help us conduct our job the best way possible. There is a good level of support across the company from other contracts and other departments throughout the company so there is always someone to turn to for help and advice.

I started to work for E-zec in February 2017 as a Call Handler, my daily duties were to take calls from patients, hospitals, Social Workers, Doctors Surgeries to book transport for patients going to outpatients’ appointments.  Also, I would take calls for discharges from hospitals. I then had the opportunity to progress in the company when I became Team Leader in the Call Centre in November 2018.  I love my job and the challenges it brings.

I joined E-Zec in 2015 as a call taker, and over the years have worked hard to progress into my new role of Compliance Assistant.

The management within the company are approachable and are always on hand to give advice on how to get the most from the job. When you’ve made a difference for a patient you realise how regarding and meaningful the job truly is.
