The Critical Care Network was established in 2002 as a collaborative partnership bringing together clinical services to work together in order to promote the highest quality critical care services. Critical Care is a vital hospital service and the intensive Care Unit (ICU) is the area where the sickest patients in the hospital are treated.


In May 2015 the Critical Care and Major Trauma Networks combined under one Network; The Greater Manchester Critical Care and Major Trauma Network. 


The Network has implemented a very clear and effectively designed organisational structure, which ensures clear lines of accountability, effective two-way communication and clearly defined workstreams. This structure allows for integration of both management and clinical staff who together have adopted a common approach for planning and delivering the needs of the critically ill patient, and enables ideas to be exchanged and best practice shared easily and effectively across all units within the Network for the benefit of patients, carers and staff.


The Network works closely with the Critical Care Networks in the North West and with other regional networks including Cancer, Cardiac, Paediatric and Renal in order to identify and address issues which interface across clinical services regionally and nationally.

The article is based on the work performed at a colloquium organised jointly by the ICS and FICM.

The report highlights the process of care for patients who undergo a tracheostomy or a laryngectomy. The report takes a critical look at areas where the care of patients might have been improved. Remediable factors have also been identified in the clinical and the organisational care of these patients.
