Join us for the official launch of the Greater Manchester Academic Centre for Acute Tissue Injury and Trauma Care (GM-CAT). This new alliance works across MAHSC partners and aims to ensure the NHS within Greater Manchester delivers world-class trauma services underpinned by research, education and training.
Lunch is provided and will be followed by a diverse range of talks from both local and national leads, including Professor Matt Costa, NIHR National Specialty Lead in Injuries and Emergencies.
This event will include an opportunity to learn more about GM-CAT, have your say on its future directions and discover how to get involved.
