Incident report

The team was called to assist Edale Mountain Rescue Team with an injured walker who had sustained knee and wrist injuries. The casualty was treated on scene and placed on a stretcher, ready for transfer to an East Midlands Ambulance Service ambulance.

Before the ambulance arrived, a taxi was organised by a member of the walking party, which proved a good decision as the ambulance was diverted to a priority 1 call. As the injury to get casualty was not life-threatening, they were taken to hospital via the taxi.
