In this section you can find out about the experience of having a close friend or relative in intensive care by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 38 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as visiting, keeping a diary, receiving information from doctors, recovery and adjusting to a changed life. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
