At 1530 the team were called by South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust and Devon & Cornwall Police to attend to a female walker, on the moor, with a significant lower limb injury.
Team members responded to the lady in the Gidleigh Common area. Within 45 minutes, of the call, we had members on site, with the ability to start providing some pain relief to the very painful injury the patient presented with.
After the team extracted the casualty from the moorland to the road head, she was taken to RD&E, by land ambulance, for further care.
We wish the lady a speedy recovery and hope she can get out on the moor as soon as possible!
