Acute Care

Patients will be taken to an acute hospital that is part of the Trauma Network - either a Major Trauma Centre or one of the Trauma Units. The pre-hospital services will decide which hospital to take patients to based on the East of England Trauma Triage Tool (TTT). Where possible and safe, TTT positive patients will be taken directly to a Major Trauma Centre, usually at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge but for those in the south of the region they may be taken to the Royal London Hospital or St Mary's Hospital - both Major Trauma Centres.

 

The hospital's Trauma Committee is the focus for quality and governance of trauma care. It is led by an appointed chair who also becomes a member of the Trauma Network Acute Care Group.
