SWUK Burns Network

SWUK Burns Network

The role of the SWUK Operational Delivery Network (ODN) is to deliver a work programme to enhance and standardise the delivery of care to adult and paediatric patients who have suffered a burn injury or a skin loss condition.

It fulfils the principles outlined in the National Burn Care Review, works to the national referral thresholds and aims to achieve the national standards for burn care (NHS Specialised Services, National Network for Burn Care, National Burn Care Standards January 2014). 

The SWUK ODN ensures outcomes and quality standards are improved; and evidence based networked patient pathways are agreed and implemented. It ensures burn services within the ODN are working to the same principles and to the same standards for patient benefit.

The SWUK Burn Care Network has a population of approximately 10 million, serving the South West of England, parts of South Central England and South, Mid and West Wales.
