Our critical care service integrates the RMO team and the consultant intensivist team under the same ‘We Are RiSE’ umbrella. This facilitates communication and teamwork.
We’ve worked hard to put together a team of experts who are leaders in their fields. We can offer clinical leadership at the highest level, critical care expertise in neurosciences, general intensive care and particularly in cardiothoracic critical care.
We have just shy of 20 critical care consultants on our team, many from the ECMO team at Wythenshawe Hospital who have extensive experience in extracorporeal support and cardiothoracic critical care. (including heart and lung transplantation). Other consultants have vast experience in general intensive care and Neuro ICU.
Our middle-grade doctors are either intensive-care doctors or anaesthetists with lots of critical care experience. Both them and our consultants work together as part of the same team, something that is vital for communication about specific patient problems.
In the near future, we’ll be expanding our team to provide the whole resident medical service at Spire Manchester. We hope to bring reassurance that any patient who becomes critically unwell will have immediate access to a critical care team that provides all necessary care.
The expertise and experience available in teaching – at all levels is also of the highest calibre. We are established authors, have run courses, taught school children, medical students and consultants, and provided motivational talks, I.T. advice and management consultancy services.
We believe that we can make a difference – not just to patients’ lives, but to those inspired to take up medical careers too. We believe in looking after each other and helping people to achieve their potential.
RiSE are a forward thinking healthcare group who believe in the power of a good attitude, friendliness and motivation by inspiration.
