PICU (Paediatric Intensive Care Unit)

exp date isn't null, but text field is

We are a large Unit with almost 150 permanent staff. Paediatric Critical Care Medicine involves individuals from many professions and disciplines. At the heart of the PICU is our team of nurses, doctors (Intensivists), allied health professionals (Pharmacists, Dieticians, Physiotherapists), auxiliary nursing and housekeeping staff.

The PICU team operates an open model of care and we have close links with the specialty teams within the Children’s Hospital, in particular Cardiac Services, Medical Paediatrics, ENT Surgery, Renal Medicine, Neurosurgery, Neurology and Oncology.

PICU have their own website with a wealth of practical information for families and children staying in PICU.
