What should I know about anaesthetics in the UK? 

As the specialty tasked with perioperative care, pain management, life support & resuscitation problems - anaesthetists are needed in both inpatient and outpatient capacities across all wards of a hospital. Anaesthesia is the specialism most closely linked with Intensive Care & Critical Care medicine, some of the newest specialties in the NHS, so much so the Royal College of Anaesthetists sets the standards for physicians practicing across anaesthetics, critical medicine and intensive care medicine. 

Specialty training in Anaesthesia can be up to seven years (ST1-7) before completion of training (CCST), however dual CCT in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine is 8.5 years.

What can you expect to do as part of a typical working week in the NHS?

A typical working week as an anaesthetist in the NHS will include time in theatres, ICU, general wards, emergency wards and specialty wards depending on the particular interests of your role. As such you will work with specialist doctors and nurses from a wide variety of specialisms including surgery, emergency and acute medicine.

You can expect to be part of the anaesthetic on-call rota.


Did you know? Since becoming a hospital specialty in its own right, anaesthetics has grown at an unprecedented rate, playing a major role in development of an entirely new specialty – Intensive Care Medicine. As such, The Royal College of Anaesthetists is one of the youngest royal colleges in the UK, being awarded its Royal Charter in 1988. By 2021 it is expected to be the largest specialty in UK medicine as its importance to patient care continues to grow.
