DetailsThe second shout of the day came just after 12.30pm when the inshore lifeboat crew were requested to assist members of HM Coastguard Tenby with a casualty that had dislocated their knee on Tenby’s North Beach.

With the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust under immense pressure and the casualty being it a lot of pain, volunteer crew members used their casualty care skills to provide Entonox for pain relief until the arrival of Paramedics, before assisting the Coastguard in evacuating the patient off the beach and into the awaiting Ambulance.

A great example of multiple agencies working together for the benefit of the casualty.
