A WOMAN was being transported to hospital with a serious medical condition on Wednesday morning.
A doctor from the Great North Air Ambulance (GNAA) joined the woman in a road ambulance to James Cook University Hospital, in Middlesbrough, after touching down in the West View area of Hartlepool.
The GNAA was scrambled to Miers Avenue around 9.20am to help the stricken woman.
The woman was en-route to James Cook and full details of her condition had not yet been ascertained this morning, with a GNAA spokesman only being able to say: “We were flown to Hartlepool to reports of a female patient who was suffering a serious medical condition.
“She is being taken to James Cook University Hospital and our doctor is escorting her in a road ambulance.”
