Severn Major Trauma Network
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.Find out more
