The Essex and Herts Air Ambulance team has welcomed a report which shows the chances of surviving a major trauma has risen by 20 percent

According to the report in EClincal Medicine which is published by the Lancet the rise is down to a reorganisation of trauma centres across England.

It’s estimated that at least 1,600 extra lives have been saved following the creation of specialist units.

Clinical director at Essex and Herts Air Ambulance, Stuart Elms said: “We are proud to have been a part of this amazing outcome, working in partnership with our colleagues within the emergency services and NHS.

“In the 20 years we have been providing care there has been a massive change in both our practice and that of the wider NHS.

“At Essex and Herts Air Ambulance we are constantly looking to the future for how we can deliver the best care to patients and we look forward to continuing to work with the Major Trauma Networks, our partner emergency services and other regional air ambulances to ensure these patients continue to receive exemplary care now and in the future.”
