St George’s Hospital is one of London’s leading teaching hospitals and one of four Major Trauma Centres in the capital.

The anaesthetic department has over 100 consultants  providing expertise in a wide variety of anaesthetic subspecialties. We also have over 60 trainees from the St George’s School of Anaesthesia and fellows who rotate through these subspecialities.

Members of our department include Dr JP Van Besouw (Past President of the Royal College of Anaesthetists), Dr P Razis (Past President of the Neuroanaesthesia Society of Great Britain and Ireland), and Dr Nick Fletcher (Past President of the Association of Cardiothoracic Anaesthetists and Critical Care).

We strive to improve the quality of care that we deliver to patients through our advanced educational services, research and training opportunities. In August 2015 we have been recognised as an ACSA (Anaesthesia Clinical Services Accreditation) accredited department by the Royal College of Anaesthetists . Currently one of only a few in the country and the 4th hospital nationally to be accredited, this reflects our dedication to delivering and maintaining high quality of care to our patients.
