Critical Care Beds Availability

The number of available (open and staffed) adult intensive care and high dependency beds in NHS hospitals in England are counted twice a year in a census. A census provides a snapshot of provision on one particular day and it should be noted that the number of beds may vary from day to day according to clinical demands and staff availability, with flexibility between general and specialist beds and between intensive care and high dependency. Figures are submitted on form KH03a by each NHS Trust with critical care facilities.
