We are one of eight Healthcare Technology Co-operatives (HTCs) funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to act as a centre of expertise that focus in clinical areas of high morbidity and unmet need for NHS patients.
The aims of the NIHR Trauma Management HTC are to:
- act as a catalyst for NHS “pull’’ for the development of new medical devices, healthcare technologies and technology-dependent interventions
- improve the quality of life and effectiveness of healthcare services for trauma patients from pre-hospital through to rehabilitation in the home
- work collaboratively with patients and patient groups, charities, industry, clinicians and academics.
