See how ICNARC are supporting the NHS, both in our weekly COVID-19 reporting from the Case Mix Programme and REMAP-CAP, our clinical trial in critically ill patients with COVID-19.

In the UK, around 200,000 adults and children are admitted to a critical care unit each year.

We work hard to ensure these people receive timely, appropiate and optimal care and outcomes.

What we do

At ICNARC, our focus is on people who are likely to become, currently are, or are recovering from being critically ill.

How we report

ICNARC makes results from the Case Mix Programme public via the publication of the CMP Annual Quality Report to provide a valuable insight into the quality of adult, general and specialist critical care.

Work with us

Through our audit and research, we work hard to ensure these patients receive the best possible care and outcome. And you can help.
