TTHE private health company that employs two paramedics injured in a crash on a busy Bolton road last week has issued an update on the incident.

Medrescue, a health consultancy based in Altrincham, provides ambulance professionals across the region and works with the NHS alongside other private health organisations.

One of Medrescue’s paramedics was seriously injured in a crash on Crompton Way last Wednesday and the company has now said she is receiving ongoing care.

CEO Rich Bell said: “At 2.35pm on Wednesday, November 17, one of our Urgent Care Resource crew were involved in a serious road traffic collision with one other vehicle.

“One of the two crew members was taken to the nearest major trauma centre with serious injuries, and the other was taken to hospital with minor injuries and discharged at 7pm.

“We have been informed that the driver of the other vehicle involved was discharged on scene.

“We can confirm that there was not a patient on the ambulance at the time of the incident.”

The crash occurred at around 2.50pm when the ambulance collided with a Mitsubishi Outlander.

Emergency services arrived on the scene shortly after with a woman paramedic from the ambulance taken to hospital with ‘serious injuries’, according to police.

The incident affected rush hour commuters in Crompton Way and Bury Road with traffic diverted.

Mr Bell said: “Our efforts have been, and will continue to be, focused on ensuring our crew and those affected are supported during this time and throughout their recovery.

“Our thanks to our wider NHS colleagues for the on-scene and ongoing care given, along with the support of the other emergency services on scene.”
