About Department

The Anaesthesia department at Poyanil Hospital provides world-class anaesthetic services for all surgical specialties within the hospital, in addition to 24-hour on-call emergency cover.

Our Department of Anaesthesia provides anaesthesia and perioperative medical care for a wide range of elective and emergency complex surgical patients. In particular, the department provides support for services including HIP,Knee Replacement, and Spinal surgery.

Our Service

We provide pre-operative assessment, anaesthesia, post-operative and peri-operative medical care of patients having:

  • Major elective surgery (Ear nose throat, general, , urology, gynaecology)
  • Major spine surgery, trauma and elective orthopaedic surgery
  • Emergency surgery

Many children undergo surgical procedures at the forefront of current practice or require procedures that extend the boundaries of what is thought to be possible. All of this is done with a patient population in whom rare genetic and structural conditions are commonplace.

Paediatric anaesthetists

Trainee Paediatric anaesthetists from local centres come to our department. They are attracted by the opportunity to work with highly trained specialists caring for a unique patient population, and to benefit from our active interest in developing their additional interests.

In addition to specialist anaesthetic care, the department includes a world leading pain unit delivering both clinical care and academic output that is at the pinnacle of the specialist field.

Departmental Motto

The Motto of the department are to:

  • provide high quality anaesthesia and pain control to all our patients
  • provide a unique training experience for our trainees
