Moving patients in UK hospitals

Have tried searching every possible variation of 'moving' 'patients' and 'UK hospitals', but all I get are adverts for porters' jobs and news stories about putting up cancer patients in hotels.

Setting: present-day UK.

I'm posing as a hospital porter in order to smuggle a patient out of a psychiatric ward. What kind of paperwork and/or excuses do I need in order to move them? Are there are any particular tests I can claim I'm taking a periodically hysterical, often-hallucinating patient for?

ETA: Answered! Thanks very much.
