A 630 mile, 57 day walk along the South West Coast path by staff and supporters of Southmead Hospital Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to raise funds for a safe garden area for ICU patients and relatives. The team set off from Minehead on 13th May 2017. Over the next 57 days we will walk 630 miles of extraordinary coastline all the way to Land’s End, Cornwall and back around the south coast to arrive in Poole, Dorset on the 8th July 2017.

On 22nd May we reached the beautiful village Of Port Isaac, on a day when they were filming Doc Martin! We have completed 152 miles and are loving every minute of meeting kind, interesting and generous people. It helps that the sun is shining (perhaps a bit too much?)

Fundraising

To donate to the Team, please click on 'Give Now' and choose 'TEAM ICU' from the list of all our walkers.

The Challenge will raise funds for 2 charities, the Southmead ICU Charity and the Guy Jordan Memorial Fund. Funds will be directed to projects that are beyond the remit of the NHS but that have a huge impact on the lives of the patients we care for. Southmead ICU Charity supports bereaved families, training, research and equipment on the ICU. The Guy Jordan Memorial Fund raises funds for the pre-hospital, emergency, anaesthesia and critical care services at North Bristol NHS Trust. The fund is in memory of our colleague Dr Guy Jordan, Consultant in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine who died following a cycling accident in November 2013.
The projects we are hoping to fund over the next few years include a safe outside garden for long-stay ICU patients and their families, enhanced visitor facilities and investment in Simulation equipment to enhance training for all staff.

Southmead ICU

Since the merging of Frenchay and Southmead Hospitals in 2014, Southmead ICU has become one of the busiest intensive care units in the country. With a dedicated team of over 300 staff treating over 2000 critically ill patients each year, Southmead ICU is now the regional specialist critical care centre for neurosurgery, major trauma, renal medicine, plastics, and burns. We are delighted to be achieving some of the best patient survival statistics in the country but are determined to continue striving to develop and improve the care that we deliver for our patients.

The Southmead ICU Coastal Challenge characterizes the teamwork, ambition and endeavor of the Southmead ICU multidisciplinary team. The relay of staff will undertake this challenge in their own free time and will maintain their exceptional clinical commitment to the ICU.
