Critical Care

There are 3 Critical Care Units within the Health Board based in Ysbyty Gwynedd, Glan Clwyd Hospital and Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

Each of the three units is capable of treating multiple, critically ill, ventilated patients with multi-organ failure. We have capacity to increase the number of beds for short periods during major incidents or epidemics. Links between the units are strong, allowing flexibility of bed use during busy periods.

The North Wales Critical Care Network oversees collaborative work between the units, including work on transfer of the critically ill, head injury pathways and major incident planning to name but a few.
