The PELoTS Study

Trauma is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in children. Current data regarding children’s trauma is extremely limited. The Paediatric Evaluation of the London Major Trauma System (PELoTS) service review was performed to fill this gap in our knowledge. This project was approved by the London Major Trauma Steering Group and the Pan-London Children’s Trauma Specialty Group.

Led by Dr Ceri Elbourne, PELoTS captured data on 665 children from all four London Trauma networks including the 4 Major Trauma Centres and 14 Trauma Units.

PELoTS is in write up with publication anticipated in Spring 2020.
