About ICUsteps

ICUsteps (the Intensive Care Unit Support Teams for Ex-Patients) 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. Our 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. We do this through our network of local support groups, through provision of critical illness patient and relative information in over a dozen languages, and through providing a patient voice to national healthcare bodies such as NHS England, NICE and the Critical Care Leadership Forum.
