At 11:50am this morning (18th) Magpas Doctor Simon Lewis and Paramedic Steve Chambers landed in Bedford via the Magpas Air Ambulance. They had been called to treat a woman who had been seriously injured in a collision between a bus and a pedestrian.
The Magpas enhanced medical team assessed the patient (in her 50’s) who had sustained multiple injuries. They placed her into a medically induced coma at the scene (providing her with A&E level care) before airlifting her to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, monitoring her condition the whole way. She was in a serious but stable condition upon arrival.
The helicopter crew who flew the medical team and patient were Pilot Craig Redman and Crewmember George Phillips.
An EEAST Ambulance Service paramedic crew and Bedfordshire Police were also in attendance.
We have no further information.
