ICU Steps: Empathy, not Sympathy

ICUsteps was founded in 2005 by former patients, their relatives and ICU staff to support patients and their families through the long road to recovery from critical illness.  

The group aims to:

  • Support patients and relatives affected by critical illness
  • Promote recognition of the physical and psychological consequences of critical illness through education of the medical profession and the general public
  • Encourage research into treatment and the prevention of these issues

ICUsteps is the United Kingdom's only support group for people who have been affected by critical illness and has helped many former patients, their relatives and medical staff from organisations around the world.
