MIDLAND INTENSIVE CARE
Midland Intensive Care was founded in 2013. Our aim is to ensure patients treated in the private healthcare sector have access to first class intensive care facilities that meet or exceed the standards of care set out by the Intensive Care Society. We provide Consultant intensivists, advise on clinical standards and competencies, support nursing and middle grade intensive care staff and sit on the Medical Advisory Committees of the hospitals we support.
