The Department provides anaesthetic services for general, ophthalmic, maxillofacial, ENT, urological, orthopaedic and gynaecological surgery.

There is a dedicated obstetric theatre. All standard modern equipment and drugs are available.

The post-holder will be experienced and able to undertake both Theatre and Clinics. The successful candidate will take part in teaching and supervision of junior doctors and other health professionals associated with the service. All clinicians will be expected and encouraged to participate in clinical governance initiatives, clinical effectiveness and audit and risk management.

Chronic Pain is an outpatient service open to GPs for malignant and non-malignant pain syndromes. It is provided by a team of three consultants from the Department, (one advertised post), a Consultant, Specialist and Assistant Psychologist and part-time Nurse Specialist, as well as Specialist Physiotherapists providing Physical Therapy and Acupuncture sessions.
