Intensive Care at London Bridge Hospital

London Bridge Hospital , 27 Tooley Street , London, SE1 2PR

Critically, in order to practice medicine at its most complex, clinical teams need an environment in which all patients can be properly supported and safe. That’s why we have 20 level three intensive care beds, offering the highest acuity care. Level three beds are required to support patients with the most complex needs: multi-organ failure and advanced respiratory support. 

The main hospital and our Private Care at Guy’s cancer centre both provide these facilities led by Professor Richard Beale who is also Clinical Director of Perioperative, Critical care & Pain Services and Consultant Intensivist at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.

An 'Outstanding' CQC rating

Following rigorous inspection by the Care Quality Commission London Bridge Hospital was awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating again in 2023. A rating they have held since 2016. Furthermore the critical care department was also awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating.


"Staff worked well together for the benefit of patients, advised them on how to lead healthier lives, supported them to make decisions about their care, and had access to good information. Key services were available 7 days a week."
"Staff treated patients with compassion and kindness, respected their privacy and dignity, took account of their individual needs.
Staff were kind, caring and listened to families and carers concerns." 

"They were focused on the needs of patients receiving care. Staff were clear about their roles and accountabilities. The service engaged well with patients and their families to manage services. All staff were committed to improving services continually. Governance and performance management arrangements were proactively reviewed and reflect best practice."


"Feedback from people who used the service, and those who are close to them were continually positive about the way staff treat people.
People think that staff go the extra mile and the care they receive exceeds their expectations."

Specialised care

Our 24-hour Critical Care Unit provides dedicated, continuous, specialised care to critically ill patients with a variety of medical or surgical conditions. The Critical Care Unit is staffed by a dynamic and motivated multidisciplinary team of Consultant Intensivists, Critical Care Resident Medical Officers, Critical Care Nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapist, dietitians and nurses, all specialising in the management of acute care and pain.

The patients in our Critical Care Unit have 24-hour access to non-invasive and advanced mechanical ventilation, modern continuous haemodynamic monitoring systems and different modalities of renal replacement therapy, as well as a modern and efficient radiology department and, when appropriate, referral to Consultants from our range of medical and surgical specialities. So, when other private hospitals would rush patients to an NHS site, we take care of them right here.
