Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine

Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine work extremely closely with our surgeons from the point of decision for surgery through to the time of discharge, using the most modern anaesthetic equipment and techniques. The department provides care for more than 50% of patients who visit the trust.

The department's clinic work includes:

  • Anaesthetic services in theatres and radiology: the Trust has 22 theatres across 3 sites. This includes general and regional anaesthesia, maternity and paediatrics.
  • Pain clinics and procedures.
  • Pre-operative and Perioperative medicine.
  • Some of our anaesthetists also provide critical care on our Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
