About the EAICG
In recent years the EAICG has expanded to include all the hospitals that now make up the Eastern region in the UK. It has changed from the 'East Anglian Intensive Care Group' to the Eastern Area Intensive Care Group in recognition of its altered boundaries.
The EAICG holds meetings approximately every six months with presentations on a wide variety of subjects from both regional and national experts. These meetings are accompanied by a lively exchange of views both during the sessions and in the bar afterwards! It is planned that future meetings will be broadly arranged within published 'themes'.
Recently there has been increasing links between the EAICG and the three eastern critical care networks, lead by the NSC network to try to ensure both communication with and better understanding of the networks and their present plans and projects.
The EAICG has also always provided a platform for the critical care REA (presently Rowan Burnstein) for discussion of matters relating to training within the region. Further information for current and prospective ICM trainees can be found on the East of England Intensive Care Training Website.
Mark Blunt (Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn) is the present Chairman of the Group, and Nicholas Levy (West Suffolk Hospital, Bury St Edmunds) is the present Secretary.
