MTSP in Numbers
2016 to 2021

Re.Source Database

Another benefit of the MTSP is the use of the Re.Source database, a unique online database of NHS rehabilitation services that provides Major Trauma Centres with immediate access to a nationwide directory of NHS services, their referral contact details and often downloadable referral forms.

Rehabilitation Database

  • Unique online database of NHS rehabilitation services
  • Rapidly identify rehabilitation providers
  • Instant access to referral information
  • Write Rehab Prescriptions quicker
  • Save front line clinician time researching services
  • Improves co-ordination of patient care
