The NMTNG brings together nurses from all major trauma networks in England and also has representation from Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the UK Armed Forces. The group aims to represent and develop national standards for trauma nursing from the point of injury through to rehabilitation.

The key objectives of the group are:

  • To engage all those involved in the provision of nursing services to severely injured adults and children to produce improvements in care.
  • To share common issues and best practice.
  • To develop standards for trauma nursing practice throughout the patient pathway.
  • To advise on local, regional and national guidance and commissioning related to trauma nursing practice.
  • To work in conjunction with and make recommendation to the National Major Trauma and Burns Clinical Reference Group and the Major Trauma Networks.
