Public Consultation on the development of a Policy on a Trauma Network for Ireland

The Department of Health, in consultation with the Health Service Executive, is developing a Policy on a Trauma Network for Ireland. This is to ensure that people who have suffered traumatic injury have quicker access to the services best able to meet their specialised, and often multiple, needs leading to better outcomes in terms of survival and disability.

To inform the development of this policy, we are interested in hearing your views in relation to trauma services in Ireland.  Your views can be submitted using the on-line survey here.

Submissions must be made via the on-line survey in order to be included in the consultation process. The survey will remain open until 5pm on Thursday, 8th October 2015. We ask that all contributions are submitted on time with authors’ names and contact details. Any queries should be submitted by email to

Please note that all submissions received by the Department are subject to the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act, 2014 and may be released in response to an FOI request. The Department publishes responses to FOI requests online.
