Acute Care Research

Acute care is any unplanned healthcare contact or escalation in hospital healthcare requirements. It includes not only front door medicine and surgery, but peri and post-operative and critical care for adults and children.

Birmingham Acute Care Research Centre is an internationally unique, multi-disciplinary and integrated collaborative group of healthcare professionals, clinical academics, scientists and researchers with a shared mission to improve outcomes for the high number of patients seeking acute care.
