Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine

Perioperative medicine is an emerging field that focuses on improving outcomes for patients after surgery. The majority of the 10 million patients who undergo surgery in the NHS each year do so without complications, however as surgery is offered to older and sicker patients there is a growing group of higher risk patients who have multiple medical conditions and are more vulnerable to complications after surgery.
