Work with us!

We are a friendly and progressive General ICU with 18 beds. General ICU is part of a close-knit Adult Critical Care directorate. We are on the cusp of building a new ICU facility at St George’s Hospital in southwest London, due to open in 2025. We are proud to be a Major Trauma Centre, and tertiary centre for vascular, obstetric, plastics, renal and oncology cases.

In General ICU, we care for adults and adolescent children with a wide range of medical, surgical, trauma and other speciality issues, working collaboratively with our neuroscience ICU, cardiothoracic ICU, and surgery/recovery colleagues to provide outstanding critical care.

Our team is diverse and inclusive, and we develop staff of all levels to reach their potential, offering opportunities for rotation to other ICU areas, secondment to research and outreach teams and support with management & leadership as well as training and further specialist education.

St George’s is a leading NHS Trust and teaching hospital with a strong research culture, part of GESH group (George’s, Epsom & St Helier) and one of London’s three designated Major Trauma Centres. We operate in a large Critical Care Directorate with three adult Intensive Care Units on the same site: Neuroscience, Cardiothoracic and General. Although run as separate units, all work collaboratively across the Critical Care Directorate sharing expertise and innovations.

Their main site, St George’s Hospital in Tooting – one of the country’s principal teaching hospitals – is shared with St George’s, University of London, which trains medical students and carries out advanced medical research. St George’s Hospital also hosts the St George’s, University of London and Kingston University Faculty of Health and Social Care Sciences, which is responsible for training a wide range of healthcare professionals from across the region.

The trust also provides care for patients from a larger catchment area in southeast England, for specialties such as complex pelvic trauma. Other services treat patients from all over the country, such as family HIV care and bone marrow transplantation for non-cancer diseases. The trust also provides a nationwide state-of-the-art endoscopy training centre.
