We received a call to assist a casualty in the White Hall / Combs Moss area above Buxton whilst Buxton MRT were on another callout. Initial information indicated an unconscious casualty and considerable uncertainty around the location. We were eventually able to speak with the casualty’s friend and determine a better location. The casualty was now conscious but complaining of severe back pain.
We were able to locate the casualty and, along with Buxton MRT who had joined us, treat the casualty and evacuate by Air Ambulance to hospital.
