Our services


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.
