MEDICAL ASSIST – Idless Woods (24/06/24)

We were requested by South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust at 11.00 on Monday to assist with the extraction of an injured person in Idless Woods. The Ambulance Service needed assistance carrying them though the uneven tracks back to the Forestry England carpark.

Our cas-carers also assisted the Paramedics to give medical support. We received a thank you from the injured person’s relative after the incident – “A massive thank you for helping today in Idless Woods. Your support was hugely appreciated and I can’t thank you enough.”

We were stood down at 12pm. It was some of our probationary team member’s first call-out, only a couple of days after receiving their red jackets – well done!
