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.


  • Poll

    A national poll to help us identify unmet clinical need in trauma will be available shortly.

  • Point-of-Care FBC Survey
