Intensive care

Our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) operates on both the Calderdale Royal Hospital and Huddersfield Royal Infirmary sites. It cares for critically unwell adult patients who are admitted to the unit from the Accident & Emergency Department, the Operating Department and the general surgical, medical and orthopaedic wards. This may be following an emergency, elective surgery, trauma or for anyone needing respiratory support.

On both sites each unit has the following beds and facilities:

  • Calderdale Royal Hospital (CRH) – eight beds for intensive and high dependency care
  • Huddersfield Royal Infirmary (HRI) - eight beds for intensive and high dependency

Both units provide facilities for visiting relatives and arrangements can be made to provide overnight accommodation if necessary.

Visiting hours are flexible and open, although the best time to visit is often in the afternoon or early evening after the doctors rounds and any necessary procedures are finished.
