For Patients

The FICM is passionate about improving patient care and also the experience of intensive care, not just for our patients but also for their relatives and families

We hope this section of the website will help to explain the patient journey before, during and after admission to an Intensive Care Unit. Within these pages you will find answers to frequently asked questions about your stay in Intensive Care, videos explaining what can happen during and after your stay and also some further written information. 

The information is for critical care patients, their relatives and healthcare staff. 

Our thanks to

The videos in this section were produced by Dr William English and Mrs Sarah Bean and shared with kind permission by Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust.
