The National Burns Bed Bureau (NBBB) is a nationally available resource to aid and support specialised burns services and professionals to identify burns bed capacity and capability in England and Wales.

The NBBB service and the NHS pathways directory of services is also used by NHS England and NHS Wales as part of the national resilience management response to surge, escalation and major incidents.

Please note: referring clinicians from hospital emergency departments (EDs), trauma services, intensive care services and other specialities should always make first telephone contact with their local specialised burn service.

Further information about burns service management of surge and escalation can be found on the NHS England Website:
