The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) have launched a quality standard on trauma. This quality standard covers assessing and managing trauma (complex fractures, non-complex fractures, major trauma and spinal injury) in adults, young people and children.
It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement.
It does not cover hip fracture or head injury, which are covered in the quality standards on hip fracture in adults and head injury.
