If you're unfortunate enough to suffer from frostbite or want to read up on frostbite prevention, here's where you can go for expert advice.
The UK has had a frostbite advice service for about four years and it has helped in excess of thirty climbers, often with remote area advice followed up with a rapid consultation on return to the UK. It is run by three holders of the UK Diploma of Mountain medicine, all with practical expedition experience. One should be available at most times. Digital images may help advice. On return to the UK we have access to the services of an experienced vascular surgeon and scanning if needed.
