Welcome to the
UK Critical Care Research Group

A warm welcome to the UKCCRG website. The United Kingdom Critical Care Research Group (UKCCRG) represents those involved in conducting research in the critically ill in the United Kingdom. We embrace all research studies, from basic science and experimental to clinical trials and health services research. The group was convened in 2010 and has evolved to become the critical care research studies and trials group of the UK. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes by developing new treatments, testing innovative ways to improve care delivery, and by identifying better ways to translate knowledge into practice. We are dedicated to advancing practice through high quality research.
