Major Trauma Services

Public Health Needs Assessment 2023

Annotation 2023-12-18 120354_edited.jpg


The East of England Healthcare Public Health team, led by the Specialised Commissioning public Health Consultant in NHS England working in collaboration with the University of Cambridge Judge Business School Healthcare group, conducted this review of the region’s trauma services. This took the form of a public health needs assessment which includes a forecasted capacity and demand model to support the further development of East of England’s regional trauma services.

This health needs assessment focuses on the needs of our population, highlights the increasing demand from population growth, and the rapidly shifting needs for major trauma services driven by the changing population demographics due to an ageing population. This report provides the intelligence and evidence base for us to understand needs, variation, service assets and gaps across the region, and sets out recommendations on how we can work collectively to progress in responding to the needs of our patients and populations.
