Our services

Anaesthetics at Scarborough and Bridlington

The department of anaesthetics is a part of the directorate for anaesthetics, theatres and critical care.  We provide peri-operative medical care to surgical patients, assessing their fitness for anaesthesia and surgery, optimising their general condition, anaesthetising them and managing their post-operative pain and other systemic problems.

We provide these services at Scarborough Hospital, where most of the major surgical procedures take place.

At Bridlington Hospital, we run a 23 hour day care surgical centre, taking care of patients for various procedures including joint replacements and laparoscopic and laser surgeries.

Surgical services currently supported include general surgery (including colo-rectal), orthopaedics and trauma, obstetrics and gynaecology, ENT, dental, maxillo-facial surgery, ophthalmology and urology.

We have a 5-6 bedded intensive care unit, where we look after critically ill patients.

We provide an on-demand epidural service for labour pain relief.

We also provide acute and chronic pain management services at both Scarborough and Bridlington hospitals.
