Expedition Medicine

Today I've been working on Expedition Medicine's Lake District course for expedition doctors and medics from across the globe. After a full morning in the class room the group were eager to get out in to the sunshine and look at some basic ropework, casevac options and navigation. We finished with plenty of discussion on opportunities for work and some case studies just as the rain set in.
