Combination of Injuries
Combination of injuries requiring MTC care
These patients have a range of injuries that will require observation or management at the MTC and may require specialist input at short notice (e.g. multiple rib fractures and splenic laceration). This is an ED to ED transfer.
The decision to refer such a patient should be a senior clinical decision involving the relevant TU specialties.
Contact the MTC ED Consultant in Charge on 0113 3920901 or NIC on 0113 3920904 to arrange ED to ED transfer. The decision to accept a patient currently in a TU ED will be made by the LGI ED Consultant in Charge. Acceptance of such a patient by the MTC T&O Consultant on Call is not required prior to transfer
