The service provides advice and support to thirty-one District General Hospitals in the North West of England and North Wales on the resuscitation and stabilisation of the critically ill or injured child.

The service will cover a large geographical area outlined in the map below.
On occasions NWTS may have to transport children from or to hospitals outside the geographical boundaries.
The NWTS team was established in November 2010. The service provides a single team operating a 24/7 service.
