The NTN regional audit of children’s supracondylar elbow fractures will start on the 1st April 2019. The aim is to collect data on each child with a supracondylar elbow fracture that gets admitted to hospitals in the Northern Deanery. We will run the audit up to the 30th June 2019. We are looking for an audit lead in each hospital to collect data and submit to the Northern Trauma Network.

It’s really important to know what is happening with children’s trauma in our region so we can design research and ultimately improve care. All I’m asking is that you email cis-tr.northerntrauma@nhs.net with 4 key pieces of information (NHS number, hospital, date of surgery, In-hours/Out-of-hours surgery). This will allow us to create a map of activity for our area.
