A call was received from North West Ambulance Service about a walker who had slipped and injured her ankle. She was unable to bear any weight.
A full callout was swiftly made. An advance team member arrived on scene and made a medical assessment. Pain relief was given on arrival of the rest of the team members and the ankle splinted before the stretcher carry to Brackenclose. A handover was then given to the awaiting ambulance team. The team then stood down before returning to base to reset the vehicles.
We wish the walker well and hope to see her back on the fells soon.
