While on the PDMRO ‘foundation’ course final exercise on Hey Moss a Road Traffic Collision occurred on the A628 Woodhead pass. Kinder Mobile 1 was deployed to the scene, with a small party including our new team doctor.
The team were first on scene and provided immediate first aid and scene management. The NHS road ambulance swiftly followed and the crew and MRT Doctor worked efficiently to treat and stabilise the motorcyclist who was suffering multiple trauma injuries. With concern for a rapid evacuation Helimed was requested. The team prepared a landing site on the carriageway. Once the casualty was loaded onto the helicopter and departed, the team returned to the final stages of their training weekend.
We also send our best wishes to the motorcyclist and hope he has a speedy recover.
