After a long dry spell, there had been some light rain and the rocks were slippery. A gentleman slipped and dislocated his knee cap. The call out came via LAMRT (Langdale & Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team) as NWAS thought the incident was in their area. Two Land Rovers were despatched, and we located the casualty away from the main paths. He was assessed, given pain relief, and the knee cap was relocated and splinted. We carried him on our stretcher back to our Land Rover which can be converted into an ambulance. He was then driven to our base for handover to land ambulance paramedics who subsequently took him to the local hospital.
The incident involved 12 volunteer team members for 2 1/2 hours.
