People requiring admission to an intensive care unit following a critical illness often leave hospital with multiple health and social care needs and many, around 25%, have an unplanned hospital readmission. Against this backdrop, members of the Edinburgh Critical Care Research Group, along with various NHS and Third Sector partners, have been awarded a quality improvement grant from the iHub Improvement Fund for a Lothian wide project to better support community recovery of ICU survivors and reduce their risk of early unplanned hospital readmission.
