Intensive care: Experiences of family and friends

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.

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.
