TEMPO - our guidance


The Trauma East Manual of Operations and Procedures (TEMPO) describes the approved processes, pathways and management of patients with suspected major trauma in the East of England.

TEMPO is intended for use by clinicians and those involved in the care of major trauma patients and aims to reflect current best practice. Devised by clinicians throughout the region, and using the concept of the Clinical Guidelines for Operations from the Ministry of Defence, this manual defines standards of care and pathways aimed at reducing morbidity and mortality, and helping patients survive major trauma.

Should you have any queries or questions relating to TEMPO, please contact the Trauma Network Office (

TEMPO clinical guidance is available as PDFs (downloaded below) and Web App (see below).
