The Major Trauma Audit (MTA) was established by the National Office of Clinical Audit (NOCA) in 2013. This audit focuses on care of the more severely injured trauma patients in our healthcare system. The methodological approach for the MTA is provided by the Trauma Audit & Research Network (TARN). In 2016, the MTA became the first national clinical audit endorsed by the National Clinical Effectiveness Committee (NCEC) and mandated by the Minister for Health. Since 2016, all 26 eligible hospitals have been participating in the audit and data have been collected on more than 15,000 trauma patients to date. The maturing nature of the audit now enables us to look at hospital-level data for the first time in this report.
