Adult Critical Care
We provide critical care services at QMC and City Hospital. Our dedicated critical care team includes medical staff, nurses, physiotherapists, pharmacists and dietitians, who provide care for patients affected by a range of serious health conditions.
There are three critical care departments across our two hospital sites:
Surgical high dependency unit (QMC)
for patients for patients who need more specialist nursing/medical support than the general ward level but do not require intensive care.
Medical high dependency unit (QMC)
for patients with a range of acute medical conditions.
Adult critical care (City Hospital)
for patients with a range of acute needs, patients who require more specialist nursing/medical support than the general ward level can provide. We specialise in patients with complex breathing problems, cancers, kidney disease, burns and infectious diseases.
