Student: Alistair Carr : University of Glasgow

Year Award Started: 2016

This project will analyse the risk of death and serious complications requiring admission to hospital for burns patients in Scotland for up to a 4-year period following the burn. This data will be compared with Scottish population statistics who have not suffered a burn to allow detailed analysis of medium term outcomes. This will enable the NHS to accurately quantify the mortality and morbidity burden attributed to burn injury in the months to years after the burn occurs. This information will help to influence the design, planning and provision of health services for burns patients in Scotland by the National Managed Clinical Network – Care of Burns in Scotland.
