Here are what some of our attendees had to say from the 2020 Conference:

Attended this conference several times and the event continue to improve.

A great opportunity to learn more about current trauma guidelines and consensus.

Enables me to stay current with my practice.

It has inspired me to research so much of my practice that has become standard protocol to understand how care can be more focused and therefore improved.​

Trauma Care Fellowship

Through conferences, webinars and publications such as the Trauma Care Manual and Trauma Care Pre-Hospital Manual we seek to promote good practice and encourage and support all those involved in the care of the trauma patient whatever their background or specialty.  But as well as promoting good practice we believe it is important  to recognize and honour it. As a consequence we have established the Trauma Care Fellowship. 


We hope the Fellowship will become the BAFTA of Trauma Care! The Fellowship is awarded at the discretion of the Trauma Care Council to recognise a lifetime contribution to improving trauma care, or, exceptionally, for a single act of significance in the same field. The recipient receives a certificate and a bronze statuette of the Wound Man cast for us by the distinguished bronze foundry Louis Lejeune Ltd.

Trauma Care was founded in 1996 to address the need for commonly agreed standards of best clinical practice in the management of trauma. We aim to improve the outcome of the trauma victim by establishing best practice throughout the whole chain of care. We achieve this through education, research and publishing. No other organisation encompasses the diverse specialities involved in care of trauma victims from the moment of injury, to the return to active life.
