It was a dry but overcast afternoon with the threat of rain. North West Ambulance Service called us regarding a gentleman who had fallen off his mountain bike in Grizedale Forest and sustained a deep laceration to his leg and needed assistance.
We despatched two Land Rovers from base, a member of the Team Leadership was able to make his own way to scene as he was close by. The casualty’s wound, which was down to the bone, was cleaned and dressed and appropriate medication given by one of our casualty carers. We then helped him into our vehicle. As the couple was staying in Hawkshead, we were able to drop them at their own vehicle so they could take the gentleman to Furness General Hospital for further assessment and treatment.
