Welcome to the Anaesthetic Department
We hope these pages will prepare you, and others involved in your care, for any surgery you are having within the Trust. We understand this can be a worrying time for you, and want you to feel fully informed about your anaesthetic.
There are many information resources below. Not all of the resources are likely to be relevant to your individual situation. You will have opportunity to ask any questions you have when you attend surgical preassessment, when you see your surgeon, and when you meet your anaesthetist on the day of surgery. The telephone number for surgical preassessment is 01384 456111 ext 1849.
