Tuesday 9th January 2018

Location: Kings Norton, Birmingham

Date and time: Jan 09, 3:30 PM, 2018

A man has been given advanced trauma care by ambulance staff this afternoon following a road traffic collision. 

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Redditch Road and Granshaw Close in Kings Norton, Birmingham at around 3.30pm this afternoon (Tuesday). Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, the West Midlands CARE Team medics and a MERIT trauma doctor and aircrew from the Midlands Air Ambulance Cosford Airbase attended the scene by response car. 

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a motorcyclist, a man, being cared for by off-duty nurses and passers-by. The man had sustained multiple serious injuries which required the medics and ambulance staff to work closely as a team to administer advanced trauma care quickly to help stabilise his condition. 

“Once the team were happy the man could be moved, he was fully immobilised and taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. A doctor travelled with the patient to continue assessment en route.”
