UPDATED: Interim Guidance on Governance for Smaller Remote and Smaller Rural ICUs

19 December 2017

In November 2017, the FICM Smaller and Specialist Units Advisor Group, led by Dr Chris Thorpe, published interim guidance on governance for smaller remote and smaller rural intensive care units which received good feedback. The aim of the document was to help clarify aspects of GPICS V1 which can be problematic for ICUs in remote and rural areas. There has been a request to include some clarification on networks and definitions to aid commissioning. which has been incorporated into an updated guidance (link below). If you have any queries, please contact the FICM at contact@ficm.ac.uk
