Sometimes problems can linger, known as post-intensive care syndrome (PICS). This is a condition that can affect the body, mind and memory of anyone who has been critically ill.

At the post ICU recovery clinic we see people who have:

  • recently been admitted to the intensive care unit at Guy's or St Thomas' Hospital
  • been seen in the critical illness recovery clinic at the outpatient department at St Thomas' Hospital in the last 3 to 6 months
  • been referred by their GP

Your appointment may be:

We'll send you your appointment letter, with the date and time of your appointment. This will be sent in the post and to your phone.

To change or cancel your appointment, please phone or email us.

You can bring a family member or friend to your appointment.

At your appointment you'll speak to an ICU consultant or nurse. You may also meet:

  • a critical care consultant
  • a consultant neuropsychiatrist
  • a psychologist
  • a physiotherapist
  • an occupational therapist
  • a pharmacist

We hope to identify any physical, psychological or memory issues, which are delaying your recovery. We'll also cover issues including:

  • sleep
  • sexual function
  • returning to work
  • driving and flying

After your appointment we'll write to you and your GP explaining the issues or problems identified. We'll also include a plan for you, your GP and the clinic team to help you recover.
