A Three Peaks walker (f, 39) was reported to be suffering pain in the left shoulder and back. Other information suggested that the group leaders suspected a heart problem. No location was given, but the team was asked to meet the caller at The Old Hill Inn. The caller could not be called back, so the duty controller went to the Hill Inn. A team vehicle set off from Clapham and other team members were put on alert, at home. Meanwhile, the casualty had been walked to the roadside, where she collapsed — breathing, but seeming to be in and out of consciousness. An ambulance was called and the patient, whose condition appeared to be improving, was handed over to YAS paramedics.
