COVID-19: Intensive care triage co-ordinators needed to manage growing demand27 March 2020
Professor Christopher Newdick, a medical law expert at the University of Reading said:
"As the surge in respiratory need increases, doctors must develop clinical criteria for admitting patients to intensive care. But it is important that this is not left to individual doctors.
"As triage becomes common, hospitals will need triage co-ordinators to encourage fairness and consistency, and if hospitals require access to available intensive care space elsewhere, regional co-ordination will also be required."
