The ICSI and HSE Critical Care Capacity Programme

Wednesday, 28 June, 2017

There is significant concern given the shortage of ICU beds and other limitations, that the capacity of Ireland to deal with a major casualty incident (MCI) is an increasingly relevant issue.  This issue had been outlined by Dr Marsh and others at the ICSI Meeting in Belfast. Collaboration between the Dublin ICU network and national networks via the the hospital groupings framework is proposed as a way of achieving improved coherence to the advocacy in this respect.
