Medical Evacuation


Skegness All Weather Lifeboat was called by HMCG to Edda Passat a wind farm support vessel which required a crew member with a medical condition bringing back to Skegness Hospital, when we arrived on scene we contacted the Vessel and agreed a procedure for transfer. 

We placed one casualty care trained crewman on board to assess the casualty using the vessels pilot ladder and then transferred the casualty and crewman back to the lifeboat and transited back to Skegness. 

Assessment's continued until the casualty was passed into the care of the Ships agent who took him onward to Hospital as the waiting time for an ambulance was 4 hours.
