Who we work with


The Association is a member of the following organisations:

The European Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care (ESAIC) holds the most prominent position in the community of anaesthesiologists and intensivists in Europe. The current ESAIC started as European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA) on January 1, 2005 after an amalgamation of three existing European Anaesthesiology Societies: the European Society of Anaesthesiologists (ESA), the European Academy of Anaesthesiology (EAA), and the Confederation of European National Societies of Anaesthesiologists (CENSA).

The National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA) was established in March 2008. Their vision is to improve patient care by promoting the translation of research findings into clinical practice; develop and maximise its academic profile; facilitate high profile, influential research; facilitate and support training and continuing professional education in academia.

The World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) is a unique global network of National Societies that brings together qualified practitioners of this specialised area of medicine.

The Professional Associations Research Network (PARN) is a non-profit membership organisation for professional bodies. Offering expertise, experience and perspective on key issues in the sector, PARN develops research, provide bespoke services, networking opportunities, events and training for the professional body sector.  

Wellbeing of Women is the only UK charity dedicated to funding research, education and advocacy across all of women's reproductive and gynaecological health, including menstruation, fertility, pregnancy, childbirth, gynaecological cancers, menopause and incontinence. It raises money to invest in medical research and the development of specialist doctors and nurses working in these fields. The charity also disseminates information and hosts regular webinars on women's health.

The Centre for Perioperative Care (CPOC) is a cross-organisational, multidisciplinary initiative led by the Royal College of Anaesthetists to facilitate cross-organisational working on perioperative care for patient benefit. CPOC is a partnership between patients and the public, other professional stakeholders including Medical Royal Colleges, NHS England and the equivalent bodies responsible for healthcare in the other UK devolved nations.

The Federation of Speciality Surgical Associations (FSSA) is the corporate body of the Surgical Specialty Associations, through which it represents and coordinates the views, aims and policies of surgeons from across the United Kingdom and Ireland. The Federation works with all relevant authorities to advance the profession of surgery for the benefit of patients.
