Trauma units and network

UHNM (Royal Stoke University Hospital) is part of the North West Midlands and North Wales Trauma Network. The hospital serves a local population of 700,000 and acts as a tertiary centre for the wider population of three million in the North West Midlands and North Wales. Whilst most patients are brought in by land ambulance, air ambulances bring critically injured patients directly from the scene to the waiting trauma team. We work closely with a number of other hospitals to ensure we are able to give the best patient care possible.
