General clinical enquiries

Our Clinical Quality team will respond to general clinical enquiries from doctors or patients. The team includes a clinician and administrative staff.  We may also seek the advice of specialist societies or other clinical advisors. All identifiable information of the enquirer will be redacted by the Clinical Quality team before forwarding the enquiry.

Please note that we are unable to provide advice on individual clinical cases to doctors or patients.

Our clinical advice is underpinned by Guidelines for the Provision of Anaesthetic Services (GPAS), written for anaesthetists with responsibilities for service delivery and for healthcare managers. You may find this a useful resource to refer to.
