Service Description:

Manchester Royal Infirmary's critical care department cares for seriously ill adult patients. Patients may be treated in the intensive care unit (ICU) which has 13 beds, or the high dependency unit (HDU) which has 12 beds. There are 14 consultants, 17 doctors in training, 180 critical care trained nurses, and a team of physiotherapists, technicians, pharmacists and dieticians caring for patients in both units.

The ICU is mainly for patients with established organ failure such as respiratory, cardiac, hepatic, renal or neurological failure. The HCU admits patients who are less acutely ill, such as post-operative elective surgical patients, or emergency medical patients.

Following discharge from the ICU and HDU, patients are cared for on the wards by nursing and physiotherapy staff specially trained in critical care. This service extends into outpatients.

Our staff take pride in running one of the most respected critical care services in the country.
