There are 4 ICUs within in the Trust each with 18-22 beds. The units provide care to level 2 and 3 patients and are all supported by ACCPs.
The Trust has successfully trained 14 ACCPs; 8 of us have recently qualified and are now working on the medical rota.
Northumbria University is the base for training and we are very fortunate that we have a specific Masters of Clinical Practice in Advanced Critical Care Practice that has been developed solely for training ACCP.
