Whilst dealing with the previous call-out in the Goyt Valley another call from East Midlands Ambulance Service was received relating to cycling accident on the Monsal Trail. Team vehicles were quickly on route to rendezvous at Miller’s Dale Station with other local team members.
A twenty-nine year old lady from Glossop suffered knee and serious facial injuries following an accident whilst riding a bike on the trail. Team members were first to arrive on scene to start treatment and were soon able to hand over to the professionals when the ambulance arrived just minutes later. The Trail at this point is easily accessible for emergency vehicles so the casualty was soon in the ambulance and on her way to Chesterfield Royal Hospital.
