This section of the website covers some fundamental areas concerning your anaesthetic, including when you will meet your Anaesthetist prior to your operation, pre-anaesthetic instructions and post-operative pain relief. We also provide information regarding anaesthetics for a number of common surgical procedures, as a well a separate section regarding children and anaesthesia.
The information in this website is written only as a guide and should not replace information supplied by your Anaesthetist. After reading these information pages we encourage you to speak with your Anaesthetist if you have any questions regarding your anaesthetic. Further information on anaesthetics and anaesthesia is available in our Helpful Links And Resouces section.
