Critical care

Emergency and critical care avatar

Salford Royal’s 32-bed Critical Care unit deals with up to 4,000 admissions a year and is one of the largest in the North West. It is the only centre to provide neuroscience intensive care within Greater Manchester.

The unit also offers expert care and support to a wide range of other specialist services in Salford Royal, including complex spinal surgery, renal, trauma and intestinal failure.

Most Critical Care consultants are involved in research and Professor Paul Dark is also a National Lead for Critical Care. Research themes include:

  • Sepsis
  • Traumatic brain injury and trauma
  • Novel diagnostic technologies for infection
  • Delirium
