Poor trauma services 'no surprise'

Hundreds of patients who suffer serious injuries are dying as a result of poor care, according the National Audit Office. It found that the death rate in England for major trauma patients is 20 percent higher than in the United States.

Health correspondent Adam Brimelow reports from the trauma unit at the Royal London Hospital, and Professor Keith Willett, national clinical director for Trauma Care, discusses the quality of treatment of trauma patients.
