SVC Recommendation 10: The National Trauma Network
NHS(S) should include the specific needs of veterans who have suffered polytrauma as part of its work in setting up a national Trauma Network.
Scottish Government update:
The National Trauma Network referred to within responses to recommendations 8 and 9 is based around four Major Trauma Centres, and has already marked several milestones including the introduction of the Trauma App, the Trauma Desk and triage tools. These will help Scotland’s most severely injured patients, and ensure patients have the best chance of a speedy recovery from their injuries. We will consider the content of recommendations 8, 9 and 10 as part of the work going forward to develop the Network.
