Intensive Care Week

In 2023 we celebrated Intensive Care Week from 5-11 June, and marked our 53rd birthday on 8 June. We love a bit of a celebration, and what better way to get another year older than to recognise all the talented and dedicated people working in intensive care.

Each year during Intensive Care Week, we ask you to tell and show us what you love best about working in ICU, and this year, you really delivered.

Almost 150 of our colleagues ordered our celebration pack, full of tools to provide the perfect start to a team celebration. These packs made their way into units all over the country and it was great to see how you got together to mark the occasion. We loved seeing all your pictures from the week rolling in on social media and into our inbox, you can find some of them below!


Intensive Care Week is all about celebrating you and your work, so we're encouraged everyone to hold a celebration event of their own during the week.

However you chose to celebrate we had the perfect pack for getting started. We had pictures of teams who set up our bunting and posters to display in their units, reports of team meetings where you shared your favourite things about working in ICU, and plenty of great shots of the whole team getting together to celebrate their work. We even saw a team morning tea, and we’d like an invite next time!

Each pack included:
  • An Intensive Care Week poster to put up in your unit
  • Our special Intensive Care Week bunting for decorating where you plan to celebrate
  • A set of Intensive Care Week stickers, becasue everyone loves a sticker!
  • Our fundraising box, in case you'd like to use the week to collect donations
  • A set of cards to share with patients and their loved ones outlining the different professionals working in critical care
