After a successful ICS awards last year, we are back with the Intensive Care Society Awards 2021. 

Our awards recognise and celebrate the exceptional achievements of our multi-professional members, particularly during the unprecedented year we have faced.

Critical care is physically and emotionally demanding for professionals and their patients, and over the past year ICU staff have been pushed to the extreme. Each member of our community has been instrumental in caring for the nation during this global crisis, and our 2021 Awards event will share their successes and celebrate their talent.
