National Burn Care Standards and NHSE Service Specification

All specialised burn services are working to a national service specification and nationally agreed standards of care.

The current (2019) Specialised Burns Specification (Adults and Children) can be seen here: NHS England D06 Burns Specification

Commencing in 2017, NHS England and the Major Trauma & Burns Clinical reference Group, began a review of the specification for burns.

This work has started with paediatric burn care and it is expected that a revised paediatric burns specification will be completed during 2021. 

In November 2018, new, profession-led, national burn care standards and outcomes were written and published by the British Burns Association.

Published by the British Burn Association, the new BBA National Standards for Provision and Outcomes in Adult and Paediatric Burn Care 2018 will be used by NHS England to inform a new Specialised Burns specification for 2019.
