Intensive care medicine

Critical care for adults and children

All of our main hospitals provide level 2 and level 3 intensive care to adults, while two of our hospitals offer paediatric intensive care

Overview

No matter how ill you become when you're one of our patients, you won't have to be transferred to another hospital. With level 2 and level 3 intensive care units in all our main hospitals, we can take care of you even in the most challenging situations. In fact, our patient survival rates are five times higher than the expected rates and 1 in 9 of our beds are for our critical care patients. Our consultant intensivists and critical care nurses give 1-to-1 care, 24/7. We use the latest technology to give multi-organ and advanced respiratory support (level 3), and to look after high dependency patients who have single organ failure or who've just had major surgery. Children and babies needing critical care will be looked after at The Harley Street Clinic and The Portland Hospital in their dedicated paediatric intensive care units (PICU).

All of our main hospitals provide level 2 and level 3 intensive care for adults, and two of our facilities offer critical care for children.
