North-east of Hawkshead

Incident 3 of 2022:-
17/01/2022, 15.33, east of Hawkshead, SD355985
It was a cold and sunny day in the Lakes. A female walker slipped and twisted her ankle, and Cumbria Police asked us to assist her. We despatched two Land Rovers from Base, and some members went directly, joined shortly by paramedics from Northwest Ambulance Service. The casualty was assessed, given pain relief, and her ankle was splinted. We then carried her on a stretcher to our converted Land Rover ambulance, and took her to Hawkshead, from where her husband was going to drive her to their local A&E.
11 volunteer team members attended this callout, which took around two hours and 10 minutes.
