The anaesthetic department currently has 28 Consultants, 3 Assoc Specialists, 2 Staff Grade Doctors, 3 Specialty Doctors and 12 Trainees. The post holder will have the opportunity to develop their interest in Intensive Care medicine and other sub-specialty interests in Anaesthesia to complement the existing interests of the department.
University Hospital Crosshouse currently has 6 Level 3 beds and 16 Level 2 beds located separately. The local Acute Service Review has plans to develop a 24 bedded Combined Critical Care Facility, with co-location of ICU, surgical HDU and medical HDU.
