Intensive Care Society Awards

The Intensive Care Society is the largest multi-professional intensive care membership organisation in the United Kingdom.

Our 2023 Intensive Care Awards 


The Intensive Care Society is the largest multi-professional intensive care membership organisation in the United Kingdom.

Our vision is a world where every member of the multi-professional intensive care team is able to deliver the best quality care for those who need it, when they need it.

The #ICSAwards23 will recognise and celebrate the exceptional achievements of individuals and teams involved in this effort.

It will bring recognition to just some of the incredible work that has gone on to support colleagues, patients, loved ones and the public. More than that though, the #ICSAwards23 are about providing inspiration, so that our teams can continue to find the strength to meet the significant psychological demand it takes to bring world class care to patients when they need it most.
