MIDLAND INTENSIVE CARE
Providing 24 hour consultant critical care for elective and emergent patients, spanning all the major specialties, to both the private and public sectors, plus a perioperative anaesthetic service for high risk or complex surgical cases.
SERVICES WE PROVIDE
Midland Intensive Care provides a consultant critical care service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for both elective and emergent patients requiring treatment in intensive care. Our expertise spans all the major specialties including cardiothoracic surgery, oncology, and general medicine. All consultants are Fellows of Intensive Care Medicine and have a minimum of 15 years teaching hospital experience working in the critical care environment. We work with a multi-disciplinary team including medical and surgical consultants, nurses, and physiotherapists. This ensures that we provide the highest level of clinical care both to patients on the critical care unit and on the ward through an outreach service. Our aim is to provide critical care services to both the private and public sectors. We currently work at the BMI Priory Hospital in Birmingham covering six level 3 beds in a state-of-the-art facility.
Midland Intensive Care offers a perioperative anaesthetic service for high-risk or complex surgical cases. This includes pre-operative assessment and contribution to multi-disciplinary team discussions, invasive intra-operative monitoring, a transoesophageal echocardiography service, and post-operative critical care and ward management.
