The Critical Care Department
The Critical Care department has 40 adult critical care beds (20 ICU and 20 HDU) and serves a large University Teaching Hospital with approximately 1000 beds. There are numerous tertiary services on site offering tremendous clinical experience to the successful applicant.

A team of 22 consultants in Critical Care Medicine provides 24-hour cover. The ICU currently has 17 beds open and is nursed on a 1:1 basis.

The medical workforce is multi-disciplinary at both trainees and consultant level (Anaesthesia, Acute Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Nephrology and Respiratory Medicine) and is reflective of the specialty-mix of trainees and case-mix of patients
