New trauma centres open across England

3rd April 2012

Health secretary, Andrew Lansley, has said 22 new centres designed to offer specialist care for patients who have suffered major trauma will open in England.

He said: "For far too long, people have needlessly died from major trauma injuries because some local hospitals were not equipped with the right facilities or specialist teams to treat patients with life-threatening injuries quickly. Seriously injured patients need to be assessed and treated quickly. With 22 new trauma centres now opening across England staffed with a full specialist trauma team, we hope to save up to 600 lives a year."
