The Trauma Audit and Research Network


Every year across England and Wales, 12,500 people die after injury. It is the leading cause of death among children and young adults of 44 years and under. In addition, there are many thousands who are left severely disabled for life.

Our foundation in research and our highly skilled team ensures that we provide accurate and relevant information to help Doctors, Nurses and Managers improve their services.
