In June 2013, Warwick Wilderness Medicine society (WWM) at the University of Warwick, UK, ran a pre-hospital care training weekend culminating in an ambitious search and rescue (SAR) training exercise in the Lake District, England. Seventeen participants were provided with refresher training in wilderness medicine. They were then directed to undertake an area search and subsequent pre-hospital management of three simulated patients. The training was run by WWM without outside involvement. Details of the training day are discussed along with the feedback received from participants and the faculty. Areas for improvement are summarised for the benefit of other organisations planning similar activities.
