Healthwatch Norfolk is working with NHS England to find out what you think of the proposal for the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) to become a Major Trauma Centre. The survey is open to Norfolk residents, their relatives and carers and whether you have used a Major Trauma Centre before or have never even heard of one, they are keen to hear from you.

A Major Trauma Centre is a designated hospital that can provide 24/7 emergency access to specialist major trauma care and manage all types of severe and complex injuries. Examples of major trauma care include patients who have had traumatic amputation of one or more limbs, patients with a serious head injury and patients who have suffered multiple injuries.
