NCL-ACTS Transfer Team Locums

The Critical Care Transfer Service of the North Central London Critical Care Network is based at UCLH. We transfer any critically ill patients within the sector and out of sector.

The service is staffed by anaesthetic/ ICU registrars with an interest in transfer, transfer trained ICU nurses and LAS paramedics/technicians. Transfer co-ordination is done by the designated Duty Operations Manager on the day.

The service is supervised by a team of ICU and anaesthetic consultants at UCLH. We use an LAS ambulance for the  patient transport and to return the team to UCLH. We provide a fully equipped Stryker Stretcher XL (bariatric extension) with a Hamilton T-1, a Corpuls monitor and standardised transfer bag for the equipment.

The day starts with the equipment check and team brief. We focus on adult transfers in and out of the sector. This includes critically ill patients from all levels and acuity.

We offer bank shifts from 1000 – 2200 for an enhanced rate of £48/h, 7 days a week

Team:  one doctor (consultant or registrar), one transfer trained ICU nurse and one LAS paramedic/ technician. There is a co-ordinator available for organisational and clinical support each day.
