Welcome to Oxford Trauma and Emergency Care
Trauma and emergencies are huge issues for patients, the NHS and society more broadly. Oxford Trauma and Emergency Care seeks to improve patient care by designing and testing new treatments and new treatment pathways. We aim to deliver better outcomes for patients and more efficient care within the NHS and other healthcare system worldwide.
We run a number of clinical trials and related studies in trauma and emergency care to guide best practice in the field. Our work informs practice and policy in the NHS and internationally through bodies such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines.
Oxford Trauma and Emergency Care is based in the Kadoorie Centre located at the John Radcliffe Hospital, but has collaborations across the University and outside.
Our research focuses on the clinical and cost effectiveness of orthopaedic surgery.
