Chronic Subdural Haematoma

A Chronic Subdural Haematoma is a collection of altered blood that lies between the linings of the skull and the brain, it can occur frequently in older patients and is normally treated by surgery.  We are seeking to better understand the challenges that face patients and clinicians when managing this condition, to design better ways in which to deliver care.

With our national partners we are seeking to better collaborate with colleagues across the United Kingdom to develop the first comprehensive perioperative guidelines for the care of patients with chronic subdural haematoma. 

In the SENIOR-C project (Studying Elderly Neurosurgery In Our Region) we are working with our regional partners to better understand the cross-centre pathway of patients with chronic subdural heamatomas and identify the challenges faced in providing excellent care to these patients.
