LEEDS MAJOR TRAUMA CENTRE (MTC) SERVICE

Leeds General Infirmary opened as a level 1 trauma centre on 2nd April 2013. Due to its regional remit it provides responsibility of care to a population of almost 3 million. The support encompasses all aspects of trauma care included attendance at trauma calls, co-ordination and prioritisation of patient care, and emergency admissions as well as emergency operating. The service was recently rewarded as the second busiest in England and also produced the second-best quality outcomes within the country (as per TARN data).

We have invested a further £8m over the years to enhance facilities, including the creation of a dedicated MTC ward and theatre, and enhanced staffing. As well as being the second largest MTC in the country we have consistently remained in the top three for outcomes.
