Spire Parkway Hospital steps up Critical Care service

28 March 2018

Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull, Birmingham West Midlands has recently enhanced its 24-hour critical care service that will enable surgeons to carry out an even wider range of complex procedures.

The Critical Care Unit (CCU) is staffed by a specially-trained nursing team with backing from clinical experts including consultant intensivists, microbiologists, pathologists and a Critical Care-trained Resident Medical Officer.

The round-the-clock cover means surgeons can now go ahead with such operations as complex tumour procedures, cancer treatments and gynaecological surgery. 

As well as offering additional reassurance to all patients, the CCU also provides dedicated and specialised care for critically ill patients or those at risk of sudden deterioration, as well as patients with medical conditions requiring complex monitoring and ‘multi-organ support’. 

It also means patients with high-risk medical conditions can now undergo minor/intermediate surgical procedures. 

CCU Lead Nurse Geneva Gordon said: “Not all patients will need our Critical Care Service, but they can be assured that we’re here if they do.

“It means our surgeons can go ahead with major complex procedures knowing that they have 24-hour support if they should need it. As surgery develops and becomes more and more complex we want to be sure we are fully-equipped to deal with any clinical situation we find ourselves in.”
