The New Burns Centre in Messina, Italy (a sketch)
The construction of burns centres has long been planned as part of the Sicilian Region health programme. About 10 years ago the need was felt for a third burns centre, in addition to those already existing in Palermo and Catania, in order to deal with emergencies in the Messina area and also from Calabria in mainland Italy. Because of its geographical position Messina should be able to provide services for a wide area of potential users, and it should also be able to collaborate with the other two Sicilian burns centres in the event of a major emergency.
