Our services

Anaesthetics

Anaesthetists are doctors with specialist training.  They are experts in looking after all patients around the time of; surgical operations, child-birth, critical illness and conditions which cause acute and chronic pain.

What we do

Anaesthetists give expert care to surgical patients by:

  • assessing your fitness for anaesthesia and surgery
  • optimising your general condition
  • caring safely for you through operations and managing your operation pain and other health problems.

Your anaesthetist will see you before your operation and talk about all aspects of your anaesthetic with you.  They will be with you throughout your operation and make sure you are comfortable afterwards.  They also look after patients in our Intensive Care Unit should you need extra support after your operation.

Royal College of Nursing members at our Trust are taking part in strike action Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February from 7.00am to 8.00pm. This will impact services at our hospitals.

If you are due to attend an appointment and we haven't already contacted you, please come as planned.

On days where there is strike action, patients should only call 999 if it is a medical or mental health emergency (when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk).
