The Alfred's Department of Trauma Surgery is one of the major Victorian trauma service providers, treating approximately half of all Victorian trauma cases. The Department of Trauma Surgery is the largest and most active Trauma Service in Australasia. It receives the greatest number of trauma cases of any hospital in Australasia and has developed a strong leadership in this area. Almost 2400 trauma patients are admitted annually, with over 800 of these patients classed as major trauma.
