Together with the excellent nursing team, our anaesthetists ensure that all procedures requiring anaesthetics and sedations in the hospital are undertaken as safely as possible.
Each patient has an individualised plan made by their supervising anaesthetist, taking into account their clinical history and physical examination findings.
Their anaesthetic or sedation is then monitored on a one-to-one basis by one of our fully qualified nurses utilising comprehensive monitoring equipment.
Analgesia (pain relief) of both our surgical and medical patients is of paramount importance, and the anaesthetists employ advanced techniques such as local anaesthetic blocks, continuous rate infusions of drugs and acupuncture to ensure patient comfort.
Nicki Grint heads up our anaesthesia department alongside James Hunt and Will McFadzean.
