Incident report

A walker fell sustaining a head injury near the top of Grindsbrook. Buxton team members along with Edale Mountain Rescue Team were called to assist the evacuation. Helimed 54 managed to drop a doctor and paramedic to start patient assessment. Given the location and fortunate good condition of the walker, they were walked down with the Air ambulance doctor and paramedic. Mountain rescue team members met the group half way down grindsbrook and assisted in getting the walker back to the roadhead.
