The critical care outreach service is a team of specialist critical care nurses who support nurses and doctors who are caring for acutely ill patients.
What do the team do?
Our critical care outreach team provide a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week service, and is made up of a team of experienced specialist nurses. These nurses support other nurses and medical professionals across the hospital. The team assess patients and support the teams caring for them with how best to manage their condition and plan for future treatment. This helps patients sometimes avoid needing critical care treatment on our intensive care or high dependency wards.
Any members of the healthcare team looking after you or your relative can refer patients to the service.
You may see the team around the hospital. If you have any questions about your care or your relatives care please ask them and they will be happy to help.
