Greater Manchester Major Trauma Network

The principal aim of the Greater Manchester Major Trauma Network is the delivery of effective and safe patient pathways so that patients within the network region can access expert care for their injuries. Children’s major trauma services (15 years and under) are managed by the North West Children's Major Trauma Network with whom we work closely.

Good trauma care involves getting the patient to the most appropriate healthcare setting quickly and safely. This means identifying the seriousness of the injury as early as possible and having expert trauma teams ready and waiting to receive the patient when they arrive at hospital. It is the Network's role to support the delivery of these services.
