East of England Critical Care Operational Delivery Network


Critical Care Networks

The East of England Critical Care Operational Delivery Network is a large network by UK and international standards and covers the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Essex. The network covers a population of approximately 5.8million. There are 18 acute trusts within the region and 19 Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs)


Overall Aim

The overall aim of the East of England Critical Care Operational Delivery Network is to improve access, experience and outcomes for all patients that use adult critical care services

For this to happen the network works collaboratively with Clinicians, Commissioners and Managers to ensure safe, quality care is delivered to critically ill patients. This collaborative way of working continues to contribute to the effective development of critical care services across the region. The network aims to optimise the provision of critical care services and strives to develop and maintain patient pathways to improve outcomes for patients and their families who access critical care across the East of England.

We aim, to facilitate the sharing of good practice, develop where appropriate common policies and procedures and support and help providers and commissioners implement national best practice recommendations related to critical care.

The network has a very supportive community and a wealth of knowledge and expertise to draw upon, therefore the network has the ability to bring together and utilise the clinical and managerial strength of all professionals to enable joint working.
