The NBCN collaborates with the other three Burn Care ODNs.  All  Burn Care ODNs are overseen by NHS England’s Trauma National Programme of Care and the Major Trauma Clinical Reference Group which brings together major trauma and burns. Both ensure Burn Care ODNs are delivering against core and developmental standards as defined in the National Service Specification for Specialised Burn Care (all ages).
