The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust


Adult Critical Care


Critical care helps people with life threatening conditions and injuries. Our units provide two levels of care for patients - high dependency and intensive care for the adult population of West Yorkshire and beyond.

In Leeds we have five units across two sites. At Leeds General Infirmary we have three critical care units and at St James's Hospital we have two units.

We provide an Outreach team to the rest of the hospital and this now offers a 24hr service on the St James's hospital site. The critical care service also manages the Resuscitation team who are responsible for the delivery of staff training and respond to resuscitation calls within the hospital.
