A Community Paramedic used his advanced skills to glue a cut to a man’s head at the scene of his car crash.
It meant this casualty of the incident in Wellington Road, Bilston, to which West Midlands Ambulance Service was called shortly before 1.25pm today, didn’t have to go to hospital.
The advanced Community Paramedic was one of the resources to attend, the others were a paramedic area support officer and two ambulance crews.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “By using these additional skills, we were able to avoid one hospital admission.
“Three others did go to hospital though. They were a man with a cut eyelid, a woman with a head injury and another woman complaining of neck pain.
“All three were taken to New Cross Hospital.”
