Who we are


The Intensive Care Society is the largest multi-professional critical care membership organisation in the UK that welcomes medical, nursing and allied healthcare professionals from across the world. 

Our members take care of the sickest patients in hospital and support their families. For almost 50 years the Society has provided educational resources, support and advice to our members, patients and relatives. We are dedicated to supporting the delivery of the highest quality of intensive care in the UK.

Our Mission 
We represent the views of the multi professional critical care community and help them by providing opportunities for knowledge exchange to support learning. we enable them to contribute to research and standards development. 

Our Values
