I suggest you contact the BHPS and they will put you in touch with your nearest carer who will be able to look at this hog. They would be able to assess if it needs a vet and know good local ones.
I am astonished your colleague isn’t concerned about a hog covered in blood, to just release it into the garden borders on cruelty
Regarding relocation while it would be tempting to take it somewhere ‘safe’ it would be like dropping you off in the middle of China with no money and saying survive. It would be best to keep it in the same area – perhaps find if one of your colleagues neighbours is feeding hogs and introduce it there so it has a new food source. The BHPS have released new guidance for releasing hogs which everyone should read
