Critical care service

Our Oncology Critical Care Unit has been open since December 2006 with state of the art facilities for patients, their relatives and staff including high-tech equipment to support eight level 2/3 specialist critical care beds.

The unit provides an in-house pharmacy and laboratory, staff training rooms and overnight rooms for relatives and staff. We also provide an outreach support services for patients once they have been discharged from the Critical care unit.
