Glasgow Critical Care Unit

critical careBMI Ross Hall Hospital is one of very few private hospitals in the UK to offer advanced critical care facilities through a full level III intensive care unit. Such advanced capabilities have enabled us to treat cases over many years at the highest level of complexity, including major spinal, bariatric, gynaecological and urological surgery as well as complex orthopaedic and major bowel surgery.

Our Intensive Care Unit provides dedicated and specialised care for:

  • Critically ill patients
  • Patients requiring advanced care following major complex surgical procedures
  • Patients with a variety of medical conditions who require complex multi-organ support
  • High risk patients undergoing minor/intermediate procedures e.g. patients with sleep apnoea, or complex medical histories

In addition to major and complex surgical cases, our ITU level III facilities provide all of our patients and consultants with a distinct advantage above and beyond many smaller private hospitals - our ability to offer the highest level of critical care back-up for any procedure undertaken at the hospital. The ability to cover every eventuality provides reassurance to our consultants and patients, and helps us to attract leading specialists.

With five Level 3 ITU beds, the Intensive Care Unit is staffed by a skilled, dynamic and motivated nursing team with 24 hour support from the multi-disciplinary team including:

  • Consultants in Intensive Care Medicine
  • Critical Care Resident Medical Officers
