NSW Inter-hospital major trauma transfer:
Interim Guideline

Cover imageThe NSW Inter-hospital major trauma transfer interim guideline has been developed to assist clinicians, when managing a major trauma patient, in:

  • rapid identification
  • early intervention
  • initial management
  • transfer

It is not intended to replace senior clinical decision-making.

This is an interim guideline, to accommodate for expected changes within the critical care and trauma networks in the short-to-medium term.

The guideline should be read alongside the NSW Critical Care Tertiary Referral Networks and Transfer of Care (ADULTS) PD2018_011 and NSW Policy Directive PD2005_157 Emergency Paediatric Referrals and local policy.
