About this service

The Anaesthesia and theatres department is one of the largest departments in the hospital, and provides comfortable and safe anaesthetic services for around 27,000 patients undergoing surgery every year.

The highly experienced and skilled team provides a modern leading-edge anaesthetic service to all clinical specialities including emergency services, obstetrics, intensive care, heart services and neurosciences for patients across the trust.

The department also has managerial responsibility for the operating theatres, managing 19 theatres at Aintree, caring for patients before, during and after surgery or other procedures.

Services the Anaesthetic Department provide includes:

  • The perioperative management of all surgical patients (except cardiothoracic and transplant surgery)
  • General Critical Care
  • Acute Pain Management
  • Emergency forward aid team

The department provides extra anaesthetic services to the Cardiology, Radiology and Gastroenterology departments and works closely with the Critical Care Unit providing several of the doctors who work there.

Aintree is a specialist centre for the care of head and neck cancers, upper gastro-intestinal conditions and liver diseases and as a result of this, the range of skills required from the Anaesthesia team is wide and the level of expertise extremely high.

The Team

The team comprises of consultants, specialists, doctors and clinical nurse specialists. Our consultants work across Aintree University Hospital and The Walton Centre.
