About us

We are an independent registered charity (charity number: 1039417). We do not make a profit – all income is spent on delivering a high quality service to the critical care community. Audits are funded by the hospitals we provide audit services to. Research is funded by grants.

We help critically ill patients by providing information/feedback about the quality of care to those who work in critical care.  We also make information about the quality of care available to the public through the Annual Quality Report.

We provide high quality information:

  • through our national clinical audits, where hospitals/critical care units use information from reports to help them improve care;
  • through our research, where data are collected to answer specific questions or to test theories.
