Critical Care, Anaesthetics and Emergency Medicine

Clinical Research in this area has the support of all 8 Intensive Care Consultants and a team of Anaesthetics and Emergency Department Consultants.

We are involved in a number of research studies both nationally and internationally, collaborating with established and pioneering research groups. This research benefits the sickest patients in the hospital and advances the knowledge and understanding of critical care medicine.

ITU have been involved in several studies of global importance, investigating interventions and systems of care, this ensures that the care we deliver to our patients is evidence based and of the highest possible standard.

The research projects are led by our consultants, who are the principal investigators for the studies and take responsibility for their overall conduct. We also have a team of research nurses, experienced in critical care, who have undertaken further specialist training. The fundamental aim of the critical care research team is to improve survival rates and outcomes for critically ill patients.
