Major Incidents

Manchester was tragically affected by a terrorist attack in 2017. Learn from those with experience of having to deal with casualties from these attacks, including the Bataclan in Paris and the Arena bombing in Manchester. How can you best respond? What tips for surgical treatment should you know? These are vital questions as, unfortunately, it is not a question of if it will happen again, but when.
