The Adult Critical Care GIRFT (Getting It Right First Time) Programme National Specialty Report February 2021, is available for download. We welcome the publication of the GIRFT national report on adult critical care, which rightly places the patient at the centre of its recommendations. We strongly endorse the recommendations of the report and are pleased to have been consulted and involved at all stages.
Dr Anna Batchelor, GIRFT clinical lead for adult critical care, and the whole GIRFT team have undertaken a rigorous process of visits. They are to be commended for their comprehensive evaluation of the significant issues facing critical care. The report highlights the variability in access to critical care across the nation and this has to be addressed.
