Key outcomes and benefits to the NHS staff working with the MTSP include:

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.
