Sporting injuries are always back of the queue when it comes to getting the ambulance there.Old Git wrote: ↑Fri Nov 13, 2020 12:46 pm
No criticism of our NHS workers was intended but this was a serious incident and it could have resulted in a tragedy. It was presumably treated as a priority situation because he was unconscious so it is worrying that it took so long for the ambulance to attend. Maybe we as a club need to look at our medical provision to see if it can be improved. Sure DJ will have this as a priority moving forward.
The fact that he had trained physios and medics on scene would have pushed him further down the queue as he was being cared for.
Its not that long since an RA player was laid on a wet pitch for 3 hours due to breaking his leg during a game. Hunt got lucky compared to him.
