The STN has been established to support each of the four regional networks (North, East, South East and West), the Scottish Ambulance Service and STAG to work together to establish a trauma network across Scotland, and support the network’s aim of “Saving lives and giving life back”.
All regions are accountable for their planning and delivery and the finance that has been provided for major trauma. Each region will be required to provide reports each year on benefits realisation, spend and improvement. The STN will be required to challenge all regions to account for their spending and demonstrate what difference is being seen by patients.
The North of Scotland Trauma Network includes five health boards – NHS Grampian, NHS Highland, NHS Orkney, NHS Shetland and NHS Western Isles along with the Scottish Ambulance Service and a number of statutory and non-statutory (voluntary) health and social care organisations.North of Scotland
Ninewells Hospital is home to one of the major trauma centres which will be a critical part of the network. There is already extensive experience in dealing with major trauma at Ninewells and Tayside clinicians have pioneered patient pathways to improve outcomes for trauma patients.East of Scotland
The aim of the South East Trauma Network (SETN) is to develop a model in which internal and external stakeholders of trauma care in a geographical region collaborate to plan, provide and manage the treatment of people injured as a result of major trauma. This new approach will save more lives and improve patient outcomes throughout the trauma pathway – from point of injury to rehabilitation, including injury prevention to patients with Major Trauma.South East of Scotland
The Scottish Ambulance Service has been working collaboratively with pre-hospital trauma teams across the country to implement the STN. The network is designed to deliver consistent high quality and well governed critical care to the most seriously injured patients.Scottish Ambulance Service
