The Intensive Care Unit is a 24 bed Tertiary Intensive Care Facility, which is split into two pods, North and South. We have a strong focus on teaching with regular teaching sessions.
We have Registrars rotating from the Emergency, Anaesthesia and Medical sub specialties, for 6-12 month periods. Registrars will generally fall into two levels; Senior Registrar & Basic Trainee Registrar.
Intensive Care currently has 19 Registrars, 10 Specialists and 1 Medical Officer.
Nursing currently has over 120 Registered Nurses, with two full time Nurse Educators employed within the Department of Intensive Care.
