Our staff

Our unit is medically staffed 24 hours a day and a large multidisiplinary team delivers family centered care. 

We have five Consultants who cover the unit for a week at a time. All our Consultants come from a background in either Anaesthesia or Respiratory medicine. We also have seven trainee medical staff who spend up to six months each on the unit, developing their skills in managing critically ill patients.

A Modern Matron, four Senior Sisters/Senior Charge Nurses and eight Sisters lead a large nursing team.

Student Nurses undertake placements on the unit as part of their education and training.

Physiotherapists, Specialist Nurses, Dietitians and Pharmacists form part of the multidisciplinary team and all contribute to the care of our patients on the unit.

Our philosophy

We are guided by codes of practice and strive to provide an excellent standard of care for each patient. It is our aim to do this by using a sensitive and flexible approach to the individual's needs and wishes. We focus on giving all patients and visitors the dignity and respect they deserve with staff providing a friendly and courteous service. Staff working in the Unit actively look for opportunities to improve their knowledge and support and guide one another to provide patients with the best care possible.
