Medical Emergency

21 August: Thetford


Anglia Two was tasked to Thetford to assist EEAST and fire teams with a man in his fifties who suffered a medical emergency. Pilots Martin Polding and Andrew Wray landed the helicopter close to the scene. 

Doctor Kate Barkshire, HEMS Paramedic Sam Sweeney and Supervisor Doctor Jon Ritson gave the patient a full assessment and provided enhanced care, including administering medication and assisting with the patient's breathing. 

The HEMS team then accompanied the patient to West Suffolk Hospital, by land ambulance, so that they could continue to monitor and treat the patient until he got further care.
