Intensive Care, Anaesthetic and Perioperative Research
Research plays a key role in improving clinical care of our patients. By undertaking various research projects looking into different aspects of perioperative medicine and critical illness, we hope to improve the outcomes for patients undergoing surgery and staying on the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). We take a collaborative approach to our research involving many members of the multidisciplinary clinical care team and incorporate research as much as possible into day-to-day practice. Over the years we have been a research site for a wide variety of NIHR (National Institute for Health and Care Research) portfolio adopted studies from those looking at health pre surgery to transfusion and airways management, as well as those testing new critical care interventions and drugs. In addition, we successfully ran a number of our own Trust sponsored studies, which have been designed and developed by our Consultant Anaesthetists.
