An elderly pedestrian has been taken to hospital after being involved in a collision with a car in Sheringham this morning.

The woman, believed to be in her 80s, suffered a head wound in the incident on Church Street at around 11.30am and was taken by land ambulance to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

A rapid response car, the East Anglian Air Ambulance and fire crews from Sheringham and Cromer also attended the scene.

  • Could I please just clarify that this patient received the treatment she needed at the scene and therefore there was no need for her to be airlifted to hospital on this occasion. Our doctor and critical care paramedic crews are highly skilled and it is often their presence at the scene on an incident which is required rather than the need to airlift a patient to hospital.

  • The Helicopter was not able to take the causality as it was grounded because of the Fog which rolled in off the sea

  • It would be interesting to know when the reporters state ambulances attended how long this took. Ambulance response times are typically poor but you would hope they would be quick to attend these serious cases.

  • Re Jono Read comment? A rapid response paramedic arrived at scene within 1minute and 12 seconds. An off duty paramedic stopped to assist in the treatment and stabilisation of the patient prior to the arrival of the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) in 23 minutes. The land conveying ambulance arrived in 30 minutes. There was no delays in the response and the patient received first class pre hospital care from EEAST and the EAAA charity. EEAST PRO

  • I think that readers are more interested in the woman's condition and cause of the accident than response times.
