Late tonight, NWAS (GMA) contacted the Team Leader via telephone to enquire if we could help as part of their step-up procedure with a sudden increase in emergency calls.
One vehicle was made available to NWAS (GMA) and at 23:39 the vehicle was dispatched to a code Red incident in Salford, where a pregnant woman suffering from abdominal pains was transported to the Delivery Suite at Hope Hospital.
10 minutes after clearing at the previous incident, the same vehicle was tasked to attend a code Amber incident in Bury where a man with a suspected kidney infection required urgent transport to Fairfield Hospital, Bury.
The vehicle was stood down at the conclusion of this incident and the three team members had returned to their beds by 02:00 that morning.
