[Editorial] Trauma care in the UK: where is the evidence?

In 2010, a National Audit Office report cited unacceptable variation in major trauma care in England, and called for action to coordinate care between institutions. The resulting major trauma networks enabled the efficient and safe transfer of patients to major trauma centres throughout the country, and analysis by the Trauma Audit and Research Network suggested that the probability of a major trauma patient surviving in NHS England was 63% better in 2014–15 than in 2008–09.
