Overview

 

The Department of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care provides top class anaesthetic services for all surgical specialities within the hospital, in addition to 24-hour on-call emergency cover.

 

Our team of well qualified anaesthetists act as perioperative physicians by optimizing the pre-operative status of the patient, safely anaesthetizing them while maintaining their normal physiology,  providing  quality pain relief during the surgery  and also managing the post-operative care. We also undertake non-surgical pain relief and critical care management for other medical illnesses.
