MAJOR TRAUMA

A trauma system is a model of care designed to care for patients with multiple serious injuries that could result in death or serious disability, including head injuries, life-threatening wounds and multiple fractures. 


Major trauma centres are set up to provide this specialised care. They are hubs that work closely with a series of local trauma units.


Major trauma centres operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They are staffed by consultant-led specialist teams with access to the best diagnostic and treatment facilities, including orthopaedics, neurosurgery and radiology teams

 

Good trauma care involves getting the patient to the right place at the right time for the right care
