'Fact or Fiction?'

Since December 1996, a national intensive care bed register has brought together information from intensive care units throughout the country. A doctor who needs to transfer a patient can now make a single telephone call to find the nearest suitable intensive care bed. This service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
