Two hundred delegates from 53 trusts joined Consultant Haematologist and clinical lead for blood transfusion across SWLP, Dr James Uprichard, and his Transfusion Team for the Trauma and Haematology education day on behalf of the London & South East Trauma & Haematology Group.
The day was principally aimed at the Trauma Units which feed into the Major Trauma Centres. Topics covered included the management of massive haemorrhage and what we might do if there were to be a mass casualty event such as a terrorist attack.
Speakers included Dr William Glazebrook and Dr Anthony Hudson, Consultants in the Emergency Department, from St George’s Major Trauma Team. The delegates included transfusion practitioners, laboratory scientists, emergency department physicians, nurses, haematologists and anaesthetists.
James was delighted that the event had gone so well, and thanked his team for their hard work in organising such a large event.
