Welcome to IMPACT at City Hospital Birmingham
IMPACT has been running at City Hospital, Postgraduate Centre, Birmingham since 2010. It is led by Dr Sarb Clare, Acute Medical Consultant and her team of specialist Consultants. The team involves Consultants who specialise in critical care, chest medicine, gastroenterology, diabetes and endocrinology, renal and infectious diseases. In addition there is a large presence from the Acute Medicine Department. The course has always been very popular with candidates and the faculty thoroughly enjoy teaching on this course.
You will get the opportunity to practice on recently purchased CVP equipment, chest drain insertion and usage of the USS machine as well as practice on interosseus line insertion. Our NIV station has notoriously year upon year achieved the best feedback from the candidates.
Birmingham City Hospital is 5 minutes from the City Centre and can be accessed easily via train and car. There is hospital accommodation as well as numerous local hotels.
