Consultation -A Major Trauma Network for South and West Wales and South Powys

A consultation is currently under way on proposals to establish a Major Trauma Network for South and West Wales and South Powys. This would include designating University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff as a Major Trauma Centre.

Developing a Major Trauma Network for South and West Wales and South Powys aims to improve survival, improve quality of life and reduce long term illness and disability for people following major trauma injuries. These injuries may include gunshot & knife wounds, serious head injuries, industrial accidents, serious falls (e.g. with head injury), multiple injuries resulting from road traffic accidents, and mass casualty events.

North Powys already benefits from being part of a Major Trauma Network covering North West Midlands and North Wales, including the Major Trauma Centre in Stoke and Trauma Unit in Shrewsbury.

Please note that this new network will primarily affect Brecknock and Radnorshire, as Montgomeryshire is already served by the Major Trauma Network for North Wales and North West Midlands.

Further information is also available from the consultation website at

It is vital that they make the best decision for people across South and West Wales and South Powys. This means they need to hear from you – so please read the consultation document and background information below and respond by 9.00am on Monday 5 February 2018.
