Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Current provision of trauma services in the United Kingdom is insufficient, resulting in a high mortality of trauma patients. Multiple studies proved that regionalisation of the trauma care can significantly reduce mortality and morbidity by avoiding unnecessary transfer and reducing delay in delivering definitive surgery. This evidence led to changes in delivering trauma care in London which showed a significant reduction in mortality from severe injuries.
