Today we have attended four incidents thanks to your support.
At 9.15am we were called to a multi-vehicle collision on the A19 Southbound near Dalton Park, County Durham. The GNAAS doctor and paramedic team assisted the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) in assessing four patients, but thankfully they didn’t sustain any life-threatening injuries. Three patients were taken to a local hospital by a NEAS road crew and one person was treated at the scene.
County Durham Fire and Rescue Service and Durham Police also attended the incident.
Then at 12.50pm we were called to Thornaby where a female cyclist, believed to be in her 30s, was involved in a collision with a car. The patient sustained non life-threatening injuries and was assessed and treated by the GNAAS doctor-led trauma team before being flown to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough. The flight took nine minutes and she arrived in a stable condition.
Later at 2.30pm we were called to assist the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) in Willington, near Crook, where a man, believed to be in his 50s, had fallen approximately 15ft off a ladder. The patient sustained arm and chest injuries and was assessed and treated by the GNAAS doctor-led trauma team. He was taken to the University Hospital of North Durham by a NEAS road crew and arrived in a stable condition.
Our Cumbria base were also called out at 2.30pm today, to reports of a collision between a car and a HGV on the A66 near Threlkeld, Keswick. A man, believed to be in his 90s, was assessed by the GNAAS paramedic and doctor team before being placed into an induced coma and flown to the Royal Victory Infirmary in Newcastle for ongoing treatment. The flight took 23 minutes and he arrived in a critical condition.
