What is major trauma?

Major trauma is a serious injury, or multiple injuries, that could result in a life-changing disability. If someone involved in an accident is assessed as a major trauma patient, they are taken directly to a major trauma centre for urgent treatment.

They may also be transferred to a major trauma centre after their injuries have been assessed at a local hospital. Major trauma centres are staffed by multi-disciplinary teams, who are trained to deal with all different types of injuries including, but not limited to, brain injury, spinal cord injury and amputations.

On your side

If you or a family member has been in an accident and suffered serious physical and possibly psychological injuries, the major trauma this has caused could have life-changing consequences.

Although it can seem devastating for you and your family, it is important to know that help and support is available.

The sooner we are involved, the sooner we can help you get the level of support you or your family member needs to give you the best chance of recovery.
