AbstractThe presence of a regionalized trauma system has been shown to improve outcome in trauma. Trauma care has undergone significant changes in Hong Kong in recent years. In 2003, five public hospitals were designated as trauma centres. Since then, there has been a progressive improvement in trauma patient outcome in Hong Kong. Trauma centre designation by itself, however, does not constitute a trauma system. The latter is an integration of prehospital care, interhospital transfer, trauma centres, rehabilitation, prevention, education and research. Under the primary trauma diversion policy, trauma patients in Hong Kong are no longer sent to the nearest hospitals, but transferred directly to trauma centres where definitive care can be implemented earlier. The present article describes some of these changes and addresses issues pertinent to the future development of trauma service in Hong Kong. © 2010 The Author.
