Farman Intensive Care Unit

The Unit commemorates the late Dr John Farman, who was a consultant anaesthetist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital between 1966 and the year of his sudden, unexpected death in 1988.  In January 1989 the new intensive care unit was opened. Dr Farman was responsible for intensive care at the old and new Addenbrooke’s Hospitals, after succeeding Dr Harold Youngman, who had co-founded Cambridge’s first ICU in 1959.  Dr Farman was a founding member of the Intensive Care Society and also worked closely with Professor Sir Roy Calne on the Addenbrooke’s/King’s College Hospital liver transplant programme.
