6-12 June 2022 was Intensive Care Week, celebrating intensive care as a specialty and all the brilliant people who work within it.
It marked our 52nd birthday and was a perfect opportunity to show off all the excellent reasons to choose intensive care as a career.
In 2021 our community you told us what they love about their work ICU, on in 2022 year we asked why they think others should choose a career in intensive care too. We shared stories from our Professional Advisory Groups, hosted a podcast by our nurses, and shared everyone's reasons for choosing ICU across our social media channels.
We loved hearing and reading everyone's stories, and you can check them out below.
Stories from our Professional Advisory Groups
Caring for the sickest patients in our hospitals takes a large and diverse team of multi-professionals. Our members are doctors, nurses, psychologists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, dietitians, pharmacists, occupational therapists, and all other allied healthcare professionals who make up the ICU team.
There are many great reasons to start a career in intensive care, and plenty of things to love the job. But why take it from us? Hear from some of our members about what an average day looks like, why love working in ICU, and why they think you will too.
