Major Trauma Centre logo

572 lives have been saved since QMC’s Major Trauma Centre (MTC) opened in 2012. We have treated 9,627 patients since it opened. The catchment area the MTC covers is 4million. On average there are 18 major trauma patients admitted to our Adult Intensive Care a month. The East Midlands MTC is the busiest in the country and has the strongest clinical outcomes nationally.

Based at QMC, it is one of a national network of specialist centres which concentrate expertise and resources to give the best possible care, including intensive care and brain surgery. Ambulance crews are now trained to bring the most seriously-injured patients to the Major Trauma Centre rather than to their local Emergency Department.

It was rated one of the best in the country in 2015 by the The Major Trauma National Peer Review report, conducted by the NHS England. It showed that overall the Centre performed extremely well and was the only Major Trauma Centre in the country to score 100% on Definitive Care (surgery and critical care) and Rehabilitation.

The Centre was also praised for its children's Major Trauma Centre measures being rated 100% in definitive care and 92% in rehabilitation - again both were top scores in the UK.
