The Wessex Intensive Care Society (WICS) was established in the 1980's. It has rapidly developed into a society which brings together intensive care health professionals across the Wessex region.
Our aim is to advance medical practice within our intensive care units and hospitals and provide supportive training and quality education.
The Winter Meeting was postponed due to severe weather. The confirmed date for the meeting is Wednesday 28th March. All attendees have been notified by email.
In light of local and recent events, we anticipate a new speaker talking about management of poisoning!
