The objectives of the London Trauma School are to provide high-quality, evidence-based training to healthcare professionals working in trauma care settings.

The School aims to improve patient outcomes by ensuring that all healthcare professionals involved in trauma care are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to provide effective treatment.

The London Trauma School is the website through which students can enroll in Major Trauma courses such as TORCH, TALONS, Major Trauma Rehab Masterclasses, and the Pan-London Major Incident Training Day.

We hope to deliver high yield Major Trauma teaching through live interactive webinars, pre-recorded lectures, handouts, and quizzes from world leading faculties from across the capital.

"TORCH really made me think about my potential role as a major trauma consultant of the future and also made me realise how other systems work and things I can take back to my trauma centre"

TORCH has returned to its in-person format running biannually in Summer and Winter. This two-day course covers all aspects of post-operative care of the severely injured patient through interactive cased based teaching from a world leading truly multidisciplinary faculty from across the continuum of injury. This course is open to all healthcare workers involved in the care of Major Trauma patients. Recordings are made available to delegates on this website.

The next TORCH course is due to take place later in 2023. Email [email protected] to register interest!

"It is a very good series of online lectures. As well as being informative, the lecturers challenge one's thinking so one can become a true decision maker."

TALONS is a major trauma surgery course delivering weekly live webinars to the whole trauma team through consultant led interactive case based discussions on extremity, chest, abdominal general and vascular trauma, pelvic visceral trauma, and mass casualty events.

By popular demand, we hope to grow TALONS into TALONS+ to deliver similar webinars on Major Trauma patient management from other disciplines and across the world. The programme is likely to include Major Trauma anaesthetics, pre-hospital and A&E care, and perspectives from the USA and South Africa.

The next TALONS course is in the process of being confirmed - details on how to enrol will be released soon.

London Spinal Cord Injury Network Annual Stakeholder Event 2023

0900 - 1230 Thursday 29th June 2023

After the successful launch of the London SCI network in June 2022 we are running our annual stakeholder event to show appreciation to everyone working to improve care for SCI patients across London, to reflect back at our achievements, share best practices and hear patients’ stories to inform the plan for the network for the next 12 months.

This year the main theme of the day is:

Body and Mind

The aims of the session are:

1. To improve understanding of the experience, perspective and needs of patients and staff with regards to SCI.

2. To acknowledge the barriers to access and effective use of the NHS resources.

3. To energise the assets in our communities that will help to improve health and wellbeing of people affected by SCI.

The morning will be full of inspirational stories, informative presentations and thought-provoking discussions including a patients’ panel and breakout rooms. A detailed agenda will be published closer to the date.

This free event is open to all with an interest in spinal cord injury so please share widely.

To register your interest to attend at

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday 29th June!
