We care for patients with life-threatening conditions and those who need specialist treatment.
Patients may come to us for close observation after planned major surgery. We regularly treat patients who have had unplanned surgery following an emergency such as a car accident.
Who we care for
We have 2 critical care departments – a high dependency unit (HDU) and an intensive therapy unit (ITU). We treat patients who need more specialised observation and treatment than we can provide on a non-specialist ward.
Intensive care patients are the most seriously ill. High dependency patients are less acutely ill.
