Our Network

The South West Critical Care Networks was re-established in 2014 as regionally based collaborative partnerships, enabling clinical services to work together to promote the highest quality critical care services for the regions.

Critical Care is a vital hospital service and the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is the area where the sickest patients in hospital are treated. These desperately unwell patients may come from the general wards, both medical and surgical, the Accident and Emergency Department, or the operating theatres. The staff of the critical care unit use modern high-technology organ support to save patients' lives. Critical Care services also provide a key role within the hospital to support the medical and surgical specialties in the early recognition of, and response to, acute illness in adults in hospital.  

The main focus of the Network is adult critical care but links are being forged with specialised areas providing critical care including cancer, cardiac, neurosciences and renal and paediatric intensive care.

The Network takes a whole system approach to ensuring the delivery of safe and effective services across the South West England health community in order to provide valuable expertise, advice and facilitation.
