Researchers impress with Warwick Hospital Intensive Care Unit study

Leamington Editorial 13th Nov, 2016   0

A TEAM from South Warwickshire Foundation Trust have been recognised for their contribution to clinical research.

The Critical Care Research Team was presented with the emerging new team award by the Clinical Research Network for their work in the region.

The team has gone from strength to strength after carrying out a study at Warwick Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) last year.

They have now expanded and recruited patients onto clinical trials helping to understand and treat illnesses.




These include improving psychological wellbeing of patients after critical illness and learning about stomach infections in critically ill patients.

Intensive care consultant Ben Attwood said: “I am thrilled the hard work of the research team, the clinicians and nursing staff on the ICU has been recognised by this award.


“Going from zero to fifty-plus patients recruited to research trials has been an exciting journey for all of us, but I am confident that our continued participation to these cutting-edge studies will continue to inform our delivery of high-quality care to patients in our intensive care unit.”
