It will comprise the following elements:
— Element 1: Comparative data on the location, characterisation and referral pathways of specialist rehabilitation services.
— Element 2: A continuous prospective clinical audit of new patients with complex needs who receive specialist rehabilitation following major injury/trauma.
— Element 3: 1-Year feasibility study on PROMs/PREMs collected from specialist rehabilitation patients and their carers.
— Element 4: Feasibility study during contract year 2 for including patients eligible for specialist rehabilitation on discharge from a major trauma centre who do not subsequently attend.

To determine the scope, provision, quality and efficacy of specialist rehabilitation services for patients with complex needs following major injury across England and Wales, in order to drive:
a. Improved and equitable access to specialist rehabilitation services for eligible patients.
b. Improved physical and psychological recovery, the reduction of long-term disability and improved re-entry to education or the workplace following specialist rehabilitation.
This aim will be achieved through a project with the following objectives:
1.To enable these improvements through the provision of high quality data that compares providers of healthcare.
2.To achieve and maintain close alignment with relevant NICE national guidance and quality standards throughout the audit, as appropriate.
3. To include, in time, comparative data captured directly from patients and carers through the collection, analysis and reporting of validated patient and carer reported outcome and experience measures (PROMs / PREMs). Vocational outcomes should be included.
4.To link data at the individual patient level to TARN, UK-ROC and other relevant national datasets to maximise impact and reduce data entry burden.
5. To consider and plan from the outset other linkage activity which, whilst not required to meet the current scope, might in the future facilitate extension of the audit further along the patient care pathway.
6. To consider and plan carefully from the outset how the audit’s reports and other outputs will be used to stimulate change both locally and nationally.
Suitable providers will need to be able to demonstrate:
— Effective and fully-integrated clinical leadership.
— The ability to engage actively with all relevant professional disciplines.
— Robust project management skills.
— Methodological expertise and experience, data collection, data cleaning and analysis and information security/management skills, including understanding / experience of patient-level data linkage.
