National Clinical guidelines

In the U.K National clinical guidelines are published to promote consistency of service and to draw on research evidence to highlight the most clinical and cost-effective treatments.

2003 saw the publication of guidance on head injury with sigificant recommendations on imaging, observation and transfer to specialist units. The guidance was updated in 2007 and again in 2014

The implementation of the guidance led to significant improvement in outcomes with those at risk of developing secondary injury more likely to be receive treatment. In cases such as extra-dural haematoma prompt imaging and surgery can be life saving and the guidance stressed the importance of early intervention.

For example CT scans should be performed within 1 hour of request in cases where GCS is lowered, injury is caused by high speed impact or high fall or where seizures or cerebralspinal fluid is present.
