April Call Outs for our Emergency Doctors
1. Friday 19/04/19 12.50: two BEEP Fund Doctors were called to a serious RTC on the A66 along western side of Bassenthwaite Lake; there were several casualties & sadly one fatality. Advanced interventions were performed by one of the BEEP Doctors as well as the Doctor & Paramedic crews from the two Great North Air Ambulance helicopters that were also mobilised to the scene in order to assist the most seriously injured, who were then flown to Preston & Newcastle.
2. Friday 19/04/19 13.50: as the first incident was finishing, the two BEEP Fund Doctors were then redirected to two other separate incidents. One Doctor was tasked to a motorbike RTC on Kirkstone pass, where advanced interventions were performed at the scene before rendezvousing with one of the Air Ambulances from the Great North Air Ambulance Service & then flown to the RVI in Newcastle. The other Doctor was tasked to an 8yr old child who had suffered serious injuries near Sandwick Bay on the West side of Ullswater; he met up with the Doctor & Paramedic crew from one of the North West Air Ambulances and advanced interventions were performed at the scene before he was winched from the location by a Coastguard SAR Helicopter. He was then flown to the RVI in Newcastle in a stable condition.
