17: Callout Sunday 8th May 2016

We were called to the aid of a walker with a history of stroke and heart failure who had collapsed by Kinder Low End. Once upon scene, he was diagnosed low blood sugars. Once glucose had been given he recovered well but was taken to hospital as precaution in our Mobile 1 as EMAS had no ambulances available for at least 40 mins.

The team were called to assist a female walker who had slipped and sustained a fractured leg. Having made contact and establishing their position, parties made their way to the casualty’s location. Due to low initial numbers, support was also requested from Glossop MRT. A request was made for a HELIMED to evacuate the injured lady but due to the inclement weather it was unable to attend. The lady was then carried by stretcher to a waiting ambulance at Tom Heys Farm before being taken to Stepping Hill Hospital.
