The ESHT After Trauma Team (ATT) is a team of multidisciplinary clinicians based primarily at our East Sussex Trauma Unit at Conquest Hospital, but covering the whole of East Sussex.
The team is responsible for those patients who have been admitted to our hospitals for treatment and support following a major traumatic injury. Major Trauma can include significant isolated injuries or serious multiple injuries which may result in disability.
The team includes specialist Medical, Nursing and Therapeutic clinicians who meet weekly to discuss these admissions and any specialist rehabilitation needs that they may require.
The team work within the wider Sussex Trauma Network to ensure those patient needing medical care at the Sussex Major Trauma centre in Brighton are transferred seamlessly and those returning from Brighton or from out of area receive the support they need upon their arrival and with their longer term medical management and rehabilitation needs.
