What We Do

Our role includes assessing patients before any operation and looking after you during and immediately after surgery.
Before your operation you’ll be screened, have any diagnostic investigations you need, and we can speak to you about your surgery and anaesthetic. This may involve:

  • General anaesthesia
  • Regional anaesthesia (such as epidural or spinal)
  • Local anaesthesia (for example for eye surgery) and
    sedation.

We’re involved with all types of surgery, for patients of all ages. We also provide:

  • appropriate anaesthesia for the type of surgery, in the operating theatre
  • pain relief (analgesia) for theatre and during recovery
  • specialist pain advice as part of the Acute Pain Service
  • epidural pain relief where necessary for delivery on the Labour Ward
  • care of critically ill patients in Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) which takes calls for emergencies from all over the hospital- Accident & Emergency (A&E), Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) and Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).
