While you will most commonly meet an anaesthetist while attending the hospital for a planned or emergency surgical procedure, we are also found in the maternity unit providing anaesthesia and epidural pain relief, in the preoperative and pain management clinics and as part of the resuscitation and critical care teams.

If you wish to contact an anaesthetist, please telephone and our administrative team will be happy to take a message or contact request.
