East of England Trauma Network
High quality care for the seriously injured
Major Trauma kills 14 people each day in England and is the leading cause of death for people under the age of 40. Thousands more are left with lasting disabilities. The NHS is tackling this by coordinating care for the most seriously injured across Networks. The East of England Trauma Network is responsible for improving care for major trauma patients throughout the six counties of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.
We bring together all the NHS services involved in the care of the seriously injured person, from the ambulance service responding to the 999 call to the rehabilitation services providing ongoing care and support. We work with all providers to improve care, reduce disability and reduce deaths from major trauma.
