Have Your Say: Membership Survey Report 2024

Published 20/06/2024

The Faculty is pleased to present the Have Your Say 2024 Membership Survey report. This survey was undertaken as part of this initial scoping work with members on the proposal to move to an independent UK College of Intensive Care Medicine

Overall, the survey results are very encouraging in supporting the Faculty Board in this work and your support for this is very welcome.

We thank all of you who took the time to complete the survey, particularly those who provided additional comments and opinions. Click below for the full report. 

We will be discussing the report and its findings as part of our 'Let's Talk' Event on Wednesday 3 July.

What we heard

Whilst a large majority of respondents see ICM as a standalone medical specialty and a majority are satisfied with the work of the Faculty, we need to do more to:

  1. Advocate for workforce numbers and development
  2. Support and recognise intensivists in training
  3. Explain the role and outputs of the Faculty
  4. Articulate the benefits that an independent college of Intensive Care Medicine might bring
  5. Mitigate against the risks of an independent college regarding staffing, relationship with RCoA and any financial impact on members.

Three key survey findings

  1. 81% of respondents see ICM as a standalone medical specialty
  2. 71% of respondents consider that membership of FICM gives them a sense of identity as an intensivist
  3. 62% of respondents consider that FICM currently fulfils its professional leadership responsibilities well.

This feedback will provide important future benchmarking for the Faculty as an organisation and in our journey toward a College of Intensive Care Medicine.
