​Cri​tical care medicine

The section of Critical Care Medicine aims to provide the highest quality, up to date, technologically advanced, and compassionate care available to critically ill patients anywhere.

We have a 24-hour dedicated team of consultant specialists trained Anaesthesia and Internal Medicine. All the consultants have undergone further subspecialty training in Critical Care from several world renown institutions.

The consultants are supported by a carefully selected team of Instructors in Anaesthesia and Internal Medicine, Resident doctors in multiple subspecialties and experienced Senior House Officers.

The Critical Care Units cater for a wide array of illnesses and always work in close collaboration with both surgical and non-surgical specialists.
We also practice a multidisciplinary approach to the care of critically ill patients as evidenced by our core team that includes Critical Care certified nurses, physiotherapists, nutritionists, and pharmacists.
