  • Major trauma networks credited with increase in survival rates

    Posted on 16 Oct 2013 in Staff College News

    NHS England has welcomed the findings of an independent audit that shows 20 per cent more patients are now surviving severe trauma since the introduction of major trauma networks in 2010. Results from a national audit by the Trauma Audit and Research Network (TARN), part of the University of Manchester and based at Salford Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, show that one in five patients who would have died before the networks are now surviving severe injuries.
