Welcome to the


The National Major Trauma Rehabilitation Group (NMTRG) brings together therapists from England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland. The group aims to use the wealth of clinical knowledge from its members to develop national rehabilitation guidelines, deliver education and pioneer research in the major trauma setting. 

The key Objectives of the group are:

To develop national benchmarked guidelines for the treatment of major trauma injuries and the holistic treatment of major trauma patients

To share understanding and knowledge of common issues and best practice

To collaborate with the National Major Trauma & Burns Clinical Reference Group

To research into topics of high interest for the Rehabilitation Group and those highlighted by National institutions

All NMTRG resources are available free of charge via the NMTRG app.

The NMTRG Guidelines:

These guidelines were developed by the NMTRG over a 2-year period from 2020.  Benchmarking data was gathered from multiple major trauma centres participating in the Rehabilitation Group, consensus from major trauma MDT staff working at these sites across the UK were used to develop the most commonly managed injury presentations in the major trauma centres. 


Each guideline has been peer reviewed by at least 2 major trauma centres in addition to those writing the guideline and signed off by a quorum of the NMTRG. The aim is for these guidelines to be ratified by the Clinical Reference Group for Major trauma and aim to provide staff working within the major trauma centres and networks with an outline of the knowledge and skills that have been identified by this group. 


It is hoped that these guidelines will help services develop appropriate education programs, monitoring and review systems for the rehabilitation services that support patients who have had injury as a result of a major traumatic event.
