We look after the sickest patients that need ventilation – breathing for people when they can’t breathe for themselves.
Intensive care is the final intervention. Without oxygen, the brain and vital organs start to deteriorate irreversibly within minutes.
The Intensive Care Society is the charity run by and for the dedicated intensive care doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, pharmacists and other health professionals treating patients in intensive care.
At this time of greatest need our intensive care doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals are working flat out to save ever increasing numbers of patients.
WE NEED YOUR DONATIONS NOW.

We have worked with psychologists to create wellbeing and mental health resources to help support teams through COVID- 19 and beyond but we need to do more.
We are supporting and funding researchers investigating COVID-19.
We are undertaking research to improve intensive treatment and care of patients.
