Organisational Survey
The organisational survey manuscript has been published! In this paper we discuss the availability of critical care beds for postoperative patients, and provide the latest estimates for postoperative critical care bed numbers in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. See it here. Once again this study would not have been possible without the generous effort of many collaborators. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this happen and there will be more to come from us from the data you have collected for the project!
