How much does the job pay? quibron-t I and my constituents are making the case that maintaining the Stafford CCU (which is regarded as a very good unit) at the highest level is important for the regional infrastructure of critical care. There are few of these units and all operate under great pressure. To concentrate beds in even fewer locations increases risk within the entire NHS. The other major proposals which have been very strongly opposed – and understandably so – are those to end childbirth and many children's services at Stafford.
