A 48 year old lady slipped and suffered a dislocated fracture of the ankle; her companion phoned for assistance. The Team was mobilised to the scene within 15 minutes, with a second vehicle following 15 minutes later. One of the Team’s paramedics who was already on the hill reached the casualty very swiftly, and was able to give an exact location, and a diagnosis. A number of team members attended direct to the incident. The lady was given some strong analgesia, and then stretchered down to the Landover on the Yewthwaite track, and this transported the casualty to Skelghyll where she was transferred to an NWAS ambulance.
