ICU Useful Links

ICUsteps was founded in 2005 by ex-patients, their relatives and ICU staff to support patients and their families through the long road to recovery from critical illness.

It aims are to:

  • support patients and relatives affected by critical illness
  • promote recognition of the physical and psychological consequences of critical illness through education of the medical profession and the general public, and
  • encourage research into treatment and the prevention of these issues.
