Nottinghamshire is a county in the East Midlands region of England, bordering South Yorkshire to the north-west, Lincolnshire to the east, Leicestershire to the south, and Derbyshire to the west.

The county is oval-shaped, extending 51 miles (82 km) from north to south but only half that distance from east to west, and the major communication routes run north to south. This stems in part from geology, for Nottinghamshire lies on the eastern slope of the Pennines mountain chain, the “spine” of England. Geologic formations outcrop in north-south belts—the oldest in the west and the youngest in the east—while the surface generally falls from west to east.

Set within a county of outstanding natural beauty that includes Sherwood Forest, Wollaton Park, lively market towns and wonderful historic buildings, the city is one of the UK’s leading retail centres with a wide choice of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. There is a good network of roads with easy access to the M1 and the A1, the rail service to London (two hours) and other major cities is frequent, and there are numerous international destinations from East Midlands Airport (30 mins) and Birmingham Airport (60mins).

Department

The Emergency Department makes an important contribution to the success of the management of major trauma at the University Hospital. It offers tertiary level care for patients with major trauma and provides excellent care to critically ill patients. The Department facilitates the safe entry of these patients into the major trauma system, with their ongoing care taking place in other specialities within the Trust.

Part of the Department’s contribution to the management of major trauma is the Trauma Team, involving the provision of a non-resident senior Trauma Team Leader at all times. The Trauma Team Leader service is provided by the Consultants and Associate Specialist in A&E. The results of this approach have led to a year on year decrease in the mortality of major injury patients.
