Modern anaesthesia has developed specialisms in treating particular patient groups (such as children or mothers in childbirth). These sub specialties have formed their own specialist societies with membership numbers ranging from a few hundred to several thousand. The specialist societies make their own important contribution to the advancement of safer anaesthesia. As the national membership organisation, the Association has close links with the specialist societies and collaborates on many projects.
Specialist societies have always made an important contribution to the advancement of the profession. Throughout our history we've worked closely with these societies.
In 2003 the Association decided to offer them more practical support by providing secretariat and administration services. A team of Association staff is dedicated to providing a professional service for individual specialist societies covering all aspects of administration.
Today the specialist societies team supports 14 societies and has run over 40 specialist society events. We understand each society has unique requirements and work closely with them to develop and improve our services to the societies and their members.
Currently we are not taking on any more societies, however we may be able to offer advice on setting up a new society. For more information about our specialist society services or to register your interest please contact our specialist societies team at SpecSocs@anaesthetists.org, or call 0207 631 1650 option 5.
We can help promote and support the work of specialist anaesthesia societies through our event and conference management services.
These services can include:
This list is by no means definitive, and we'd love to have the opportunity to discuss any event needs. We understand that each event is unique and pride ourselves on taking an active role in all preparations.
