National Standards for Provision and Outcomes in Adult & Paediatric Burn Care 2018

The new ‘National Standards for Provision and Outcomes in Adult and Paediatric Burn Care’ 2018 have been produced by the Burn Standards Review Group (BSRG) which is collaboration between the British Burn Association (BBA) and the four Burn Care ODNs covering England and Wales. This document will be used by NHS England commissioners and the Major Trauma CRG, to inform the commissioning service specification for specialised burn care.

The standards cover the entire burn care pathway and aims to provide the means to measure the capability of individual burn services as a whole and the ODN in which they operate. By defining standards, a governance framework is established against which it is possible to measure the quality of burn care that patients receive, regardless of their point of entry into a specialist Burn Care Service.

You can read the standards on the British Burn Association website:
