Our snow related calls continued this afternoon with a request from Dyfed Powys Police to evacuate a patient with a serious medical condition from their remote home near Welshpool. In these circumstances a helicopter would be the best choice, but with low cloud and fog neither the Coastguard or Air Ambulance could assist. So it was back to good old fashioned stretcher work, before being put in our Landrover to be taken to Welshpool for handover to the Welsh Ambulance Service. Thanks to Seven Trent Water for the work with their snowplough that got us a lot closer and to some members of the public that assisted too. We hope the casualty gets well soon.
