Neurosurgical referrals

Embrace monitor

Neurosurgical emergencies demand prompt management to minimise the risk of significant brain injury.

All hospitals should have the facility to urgently transfer these patients should a time-critical transfer be required. Embrace will provide advice and assist with co-ordinating these transfers.

Please refer to our guidance on preparing a patient for time-critical transfer:

Neurosurgical emergencies will be accepted in Leeds or Sheffield for definitive treatment regardless of their PICU bedstate. In these scenarios, the neurosurgeons will liaise with the necessary departments and arrangements will be made for their continuing care after they have received definitive treatment.

In all cases CT images need to be sent electronically via PACS to the receiving neurosurgical teams. At the very least a CD or hard copy must be sent with the patient.
