Critical care

Staff in the Critical Care Unit look after patients who are seriously ill, often with traumatic injuries or after major surgery.

These are patients who need constant close monitoring in a specialised environment. The Unit is split into two areas, Horsley Intensive Care Unit and High Dependency Unit, and offers the best possible care and the latest facilities to treat patient with serious conditions.

Patients are looked after by trained nurses at all times and there is always a doctor on duty. Many of the nurses have undertaken advanced training courses in critical and neurological care.

On the Horsley Intensive Care Unit there are sixteen beds, of which eight are in an open area and eight are in isolation rooms. The High Dependency Unit has four beds in an open bay.

There are no separate male/female sections, but every effort is made to maintain dignity and privacy.

Visiting times apply to the Critical Care Unit and there are limited facilities for visitors.
