The Telegraph says that a leading trauma doctor has accused the NHS of ‘ageism’ in failing to transfer elderly people, who have suffered multiple injuries in accidents or falls, to specialist trauma centres.

 

Dr Andy Eynon, director of major trauma at Southampton General Hospital, has said the issue of ‘silver trauma’ needs national attention, as figures show 30% of major traumas in over 65s cause result in death.

 

Dr Enyon says: ‘Nationally we are seeing a series of problems relating to elderly trauma.

 

Many of these patients suffer simple falls and do not activate specialist trauma teams because they are seen simply as frail and put on a traditional treatment path for their age.
