Intensive Care: A Guide for Patients, Families & Friends

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.
