Thank you for agreeing to complete this survey that we are conducting to get a better understanding of how Adult inpatients receive Critical Care.
Before attempting to answer the survey, having the following information at hand will make it easier to complete:
- Numbers of beds in your hospital, Critical Care Units and Surgical wards.
- Staffing levels on your Critical Care Units and Surgical wards.
Please do not include paediatric services when responding to this survey, other than for the question on Page 3 related to total number of beds in your hospital. In addition, for NHS trusts
that operate on more than one hospital site, please provide responses for
individual hospitals. You may save your progress and return to the survey at a later date if you cannot complete it all at once. Please do approach other members of the multi-disciplinary team to obtain information to complete the survey (e.g. Matron of Surgery, Bed Managers, ward Charge Nurses/Managers, etc).
If you have any queries, feel free to contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The survey is best completed using updated web-browsers such as Firefox or Google Chrome on a computer or laptop. Mobile devices are supported but the survey may appear distorted.
If you wish to print a paper copy of the survey form to fill in by hand and return later to complete it online, you can download a .pdf copy here, or alternatively a .docx copy here.
