On Saturday at 10am we were called to the Shildon bypass, where four vehicles had been involved in a road traffic collision. The GNAAS paramedic and doctor team worked alongside the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) and assessed and treated multiple patients before they were transported by a NEAS road crew to hospital.

On Saturday at 12.25pm we were called to assist the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) at Brigham near Cockermouth where a woman, believed to be in her 90s, had collapsed in the street. The patient was assessed and treated by the GNAAS doctor-led trauma team before being flown to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle. The flight took ten minutes and she arrived in a critical condition.
