Spinal Injury

Spinal Trauma
All spinal trauma should be discussed with your networked Major Trauma Centre or Neurosurgical unit.

All spinal cord injuries should be referred via the National Spinal Cord Injury referral system which will automatically send the referral to your linked Spinal Cord Injury Unit.
In North West London this will either be the National Spinal Injury Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital
or the London Spinal Cord Injury Centre at the Royal National Orthopaedic hospital
