About this section

The Anaesthesia Section’s purpose is to provide a forum for the discussion of all branches and sub-specialties of anaesthesia including critical care, pain and veterinary anaesthesia. Section meetings cover the science, art and politics of perioperative and patient covered care focusing on historical and current research, and practices.

Section Council members

Section meetings and conferences are usually organised by members of the Section Council, led by the Section President and often in collaboration with specialist societies.

Interested in joining the Section Council?
