The department provides anaesthetic cover for our operating theatres at Bexhill Hospital, Conquest Hospital and Eastbourne DGH.
The types of surgery include day surgery, trauma, general surgery, vascular, orthopaedics, obstetrics and gynaecology, ophthalmology, urology, ear, nose and throat surgery, maxillo-facial, and dental surgery, including outpatient dental clinics.
It also provides a service to the obstetric (maternity) department, as well as having consultants who run the critical care units.
Anaesthetics are also given in the endoscopy units and the radiology departments for MRI and CT scanning.
The consultants within our anaesthetics department also run acute pain and chronic pain management within our hospitals.
