Thetford woman suffers collapse – Magpas Helimedix fly to her
At 11:54am on Saturday (11th), Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Sarah Hazleman and Paramedic Dan Read) arrived at a residential address in the Thetford area (towards Brandon), via the Magpas Helimedix Air Ambulance, after a woman (in her 20’s) suffered a collapse.
The Magpas team sedated the patient who was experiencing severe neck and head pain. The Helimedix then worked alongside an EEAST Ambulance Crew to remove the woman safely out of the building, before accompanying her to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in a land ambulance. On arrival at the hospital, the woman was in a stable condition.
The Helicopter team who flew the Helimedix to the scene was: Pilot Richard Eastwood and Crew Member George Phillips.
An EEAST Ambulance Rapid Response Paramedic was also present. All the Emergency Services worked extremely well together.
