The Friends of PICU is a charity covering the Central South of the UK from Surrey across to Oxford and down to West Sussex and over to Salisbury.
We support the regional centre of excellence for Children's Intensive Care at Southampton Hospital. The charity has just fully funded the purchase of a new specialist ambulance which can retrieve children who are critically ill and take them to the PICU for urgent and often life-saving treatment.
We are run solely by volunteers and rely on kind donations and fundraising from our own events.
Based at Southampton General Hospital is the South’s centre of excellence in Paediatric Intensive Care where each year PICU treats approximately 900 critically ill children.
Children aged from newborn babies to 18 years arrive with all manner of illnesses and injuries, treated by a team of highly skilled medical staff who have an outstanding reputation for high levels of care.
