Access to patient results

The GP is sent a copy of the discharge letter once a patient is transferred out of Critical Care. This contains a summary of patient care whilst on the unit.

Tertiary referrals

The unit is a general medical and surgical critical care unit. Tertiary referrals are received from other critical care, intensive care and high-dependency units across the country. The staff within the unit are specially skilled in advanced respiratory medicine and it is a regional referral centre for Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), which is a rare disorder of the blood coagulation system. The unit is also a national, and international, referral centre for tropical diseases due to its links with The Hospital for Tropical Diseases.
