It's been a remarkable year in the Isles of Scilly with so many amazing events taking place. One of the things a lot of them have in common is that the are based out on the water.

The Charity Coast Medic have attended a fair few to ensure professional medical help is available should it be needed this year. 

Coast Medic are the only charity in the UK which provides professional prehospital medical care at sea. Their medical care is provided by registered health care professionals, who can administer lifesaving medications and deliver advanced treatment prior to reaching the shore. They operate in co-operation with the Coastguard and NHS and compliment the lifeboat service.

Luke Tudor a paramedic and one of the founding members of the charity was recently over on the Islands and popped into the studio to have a bit of chat about the charity with Will. For more information on Coast Medic please go to their website coastmedic.org.uk. Will started off by asking what Luke was doing over here in the Isles of Scilly at the moment.
