Have your say

AN AMBULANCE service has launched an app to make sure critically injured people are taken to the right hospital.

The Trauma Triage Tool has been created by Els Freshwater, a South Central Ambulance Service paramedic and trainee consultant practitioner.

The app ensures crews take critically injured trauma patients to the right hospital, based on their condition and location.

Mark Ainsworth-Smith, consultant pre-hospital care practitioner and trauma lead, said: ‘The app has undergone extensive testing and we’re delighted with the results.’
