Siting of facilities

The concept of trauma centre designation may also play a role in terms of siting of trauma care facilities according to geographic distribution and need. It would be of potential benefit to consider which hospitals of given levels might reasonably be targeted for improvements to reach specific criteria for essential trauma care. For example, GP-staffed hospitals located on major roadways with high trauma volumes may be reasonably targeted to assure that they meet the minimum criteria laid down in these guidelines.
