About our service
The Critical Care Unit consists of a twelve ICU beds (level 3) and eight HDU beds (level 2); and is supported by a 24/7 Critical Care Outreach Team whose role focuses on critically ill patients outside the unit. The department prides itself on its training and development for nurses and doctors; research and audit team; dynamic multidisciplinary link teams; and its’ diverse staff to support the diverse population.
We run a critical care follow up clinic for patients who have stayed in the unit more than 5 days, but will also accommodate patients who have been in the department for less than 5 days if they want this support. Post COVID, this clinic is a telephone clinic where you will get a chance to speak to one of our consultants, a nurse and a psychologist.
Our commitment to you
“The Critical Care Complex focuses on improving the patient experience as a priority. To achieve this we need to take pride in what we do and strive to build an open and safe environment that encourages all our staff to freely express their views. We value our diversity as our strength and will learn and grow together by seeking support from other departments and the Trust Board.”
