It’s a fact that there is growing demand for non-emergency patient transport services in Australia. In particular, our increasingly ageing population is expected to accelerate demand.

In 2018, CDC expanded our transport portfolio with the acquisition of one of Australia’s leading and longstanding providers of non-emergency patient transport services, National Patient Transport (NPT). CDC’s core business and specialist expertise is land transport. Whether we’re providing bus, train, taxi or non-emergency patient transport, the principles driving success remain the same. To be competitive and preferred, we need best practice transport solutions that are safe, personal and caring, integrated and sustainable.
