About Us

Critical Care is a department that cares for patients who require higher levels of medical intervention and nursing care.

Our Critical Care is staffed by specialist medical, nursing and allied health professionals trained in Critical Care.  It has higher levels of staffing, specialist monitoring, treatment and equipment. We are committed to providing the best outcome for our patients.

Admission to Critical Care is a time of great stress and worry for all. We are all aware of this and will do our best to help and explain what is happening. A specialist rehabilitation nurse is available to provide support following discharge. The medical emergency team also provide continuity of care and support to patients on the wards. The unit is committed to development and evidence based practice in accordance with the trust goal of '5-Star patient care.'
