The North Yorkshire & Humberside Major Trauma Operational Delivery Network covers Adult Major Trauma and works closely with the North Yorkshire & Humberside Adult Critical Care Operational Delivery Network and its respective neighbouring Operational Delivery Networks of Major Trauma and Adult Critical Care for West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire.

The North Yorkshire & Humberside Major Trauma Operational Delivery Network (NYHMTODN) was established on 1 April 2013 to work with and on behalf of its constituent member organisations and stakeholders. A formal Network Management Team was established on 1 September 2014. NYHMTODN covers North Yorkshire & Humberside. It has common boundaries with the South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire Major Trauma Operational Delivery Networks and the Northern Trauma Network.

Aim Of The Network

The aim of the network is to provide a co-ordinated approach to the provision of high quality care for adult and paediatric major trauma patients across North Yorkshire & Humberside effectively in relation to the patient trauma pathway of pre-hospital, reception and resuscitation and definitive care right through to rehabilitation in line with national and local standards.  

The Network will aim to achieve this through the following mechanisms:

  • Ensure effective clinical flows through the provider system through clinical collaboration for networked provision of services.
  • Take a whole system collaborative provision approach to ensuring the delivery of safe and effective services across the patient pathway, adding value for all its stakeholders.
  • Improve cross-organisational multi-professional clinical engagement to improve pathways of care.
  • Enable the development of consistent provider guidance and improved service standards, ensuring a consistent patient and family experience.
  • Focus on quality and effectiveness through facilitation of comparative benchmarking and auditing of services, through the national clinical audit with implementation of required improvements.
  • Fulfil a key role in assuring providers and commissioners of all aspects of quality aswell as coordinating provider resources to secure the best outcomes for patients across wide geographic areas.
  • Support capacity planning and activity monitoring with collaborative forecasting of demand, and matching of demand and supply.
