Patient and Carers
The North of England Critical Care Network has been working alongside the Critical Care Units within the region to set up ex-patient/relative satellite support groups. Some groups are registered by ICUsteps and some are new support groups.
Our local groups offer on-going support to patients following their stay in critical care. Coming together helps develop support and reassurance to both patients and relatives and dispels many of their worries. Healthcare professionals often attend these meetings and are happy to offer advice and support if needed. Please join us for a cuppa and a chat!
