ICU - Medical staff

We have 10 consultant anaesthetists with training in critical care medicine.

All patients in the ICU are reviewed on a daily basis by a consultant who is supported by highly experienced nurses and a multi-disciplinary team including physiotherapists, pharmacists and dieticians. We have close links to other medical and surgical specialities throughout the hospital and on-call consultant cover is provided 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
