UK medical staff being drafted in for TT to support ambulance service

Numbers bolstered ahead of busy fortnight

Additional medical staff are being drafted in for the TT fortnight to support the Isle of Man Ambulance Service.

Numbers are being bolstered ahead of the return of the motorsport festival which is returning after a two-year Covid enforced break.

The head of the service says 25 per cent of staff has never worked a TT before.

But Will Bellamy says extensive forward planning has been done to ensure everyone is kept safe:  

The ambulance service has confirmed there will be up to eight ambulances on duty in any 24-hour period.
