This site gives information about the care provided by your consultant anaesthetist at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, and at the nearby Nuffield and Spire hospitals, which treat both NHS and private patients. It explains how you will be assessed to ensure a safe anaesthetic, what to do about medications, when you should stop food and drink before surgery and what to expect on the day of your operation. It also has information about preventing or minimising pain after surgery, and possible side effects and risks of anaesthesia. A link to the patient information website of the Royal College of Anaesthetisits is also provided. Click on headings at left for details.
If you have any concerns about your anaesthetic, before or after your operation, please contact your surgeon's secretary. She will arrange for your anaesthetist to contact you.
