Safeguarding, Ethics and Consent


The following is a suite of web pages which aim to cater for the needs of anaesthetists working in all parts of UK and all speciality areas and within multidisciplinary teams.  While much of this guidance is already provided elsewhere we feel that the additional customised resources available here are especially relevant. We hope that it will be convenient to have this material available in one place, and that it will be used for everyday reference and CPD. Our intention is to update and check references and links at least annually and post new information as and when it becomes available.


An introduction to all aspects of child protection and safeguarding & why this is relevant to anaesthesia
An introduction to all aspects of safeguarding adults and why this is relevant to anaesthesia
Consent and Ethical issues in children and adults with a focus on perioperative and critical care decision making
