Critical Care Services


Midland Intensive Care provides a service built on the recognition that intensive care activity in the independent sector is significantly different from the public sector. Most patients are treated electively following high acuity surgery which affords significant opportunities to optimise the experience and care for patients needing intensive care treatment.

Our model of care is flexible, resilient and robust, using a mix of full and part time independent consultants. Infact, MIC has provided continuous consultant cover at Circle Priory Hospital in Edgbaston for more than 3500 days, with cover maintained throughout the Covid-19 pandemic despite the manpower demands imposed by the NHS.

MIC understands that best clinical outcomes require effective teamwork and the involvement of expert clinicians. Therefore, our intensivist groups are limited to 5 or 6 consultants per hospital, selected to ensure their specialist areas of expertise fit the case mix in each specific facility. This approach nurtures effective working relations with our consultant surgeon, physician, and nursing colleagues.
