Iain and Simon discuss the challenges of getting our trauma patients to the CT scanner within 30 minutes of arrival.
The 30 minute target is a UK standard, and we did not set it! All UK trauma centres are judged against the target and (rightly or wrongly) it has become a real issue for many centres.
We would be really be interested in what our International colleagues think about the target and the resultant strategies outlined by the team. There's more on this at the St.Emlyn's website.
As always, we'd love to hear your comments.
