Welcome to the website for the Wessex Intensive Care Society

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.
