Abstract

Patients recovering from critical illness suffer many physical and psychological problems during their recovery, including muscle weakness, fatigue, signs and symptoms of PTSD, anxiety and depression [1]. At present, specialist intensive care follow-up and rehabilitation is inconsistent and in many geographical areas is nonexistent. As a result, many survivors of critical illness will require using existing community rehabilitation services [2]. The aim of this present service evaluation was to understand the utilisation of community rehabilitation services by critical care survivors.
