For Patients

If you are due to have an operation and would like more information about the anaesthetic, then please have a look at the Patients and Relatives section on the Royal College of Anaesthetists website.

Patients attending the Pre-Operative Assessment Clinic in Aberdeen will receive a copy of the Anaesthesia explained booklet. You can download a copy here.

Welcome to the Aberdeen Anaesthesia Website

The Department of Anaesthesia in Aberdeen, part of NHS Grampian, provides anaesthetic services to all the NHS hospitals in Aberdeen.

All major specialties are present on the Foresterhill site, including cardiac and thoracic surgery, major vascular surgery, trauma, head and neck surgery, plastic surgery, neuro-surgery and paediatric surgery. Find out more in the About section.

World Congress of Anaesthesia 2016

One of the strengths of the department is the training in Human Factors and non-technical skills. Our reputation in this area resulted in the department being featured in the conference TV commissioned for the 2016 World Congress of Anaesthesia in Hong Kong.  The resulting Aberdeen film, shot by the global leader and award winning conference TV company Websedge can be seen below.
