Critical Care Outreach Service

Established since 2001, this 24 hour multidisciplinary team is lead by Dr Barry Sellick and Ingrid Johnson (Critical Care Specialist Nurse).

The aims are to:

  • Improve the care of patients at ward level who’s condition has deteriorated

  • Promote continuity of care between critical care and ward areas

 

The latter has been achieved by:

  • Implementation of 24 hour Outreach Service
  • Development of acute skills and AIM study days
  • Avert admissions to critical care beds
