Supporting our retired members

Retirement doesn’t mean the end of your interest in anaesthesia. You might not work full-time anymore, but you might still want to stay on top of the latest industry developments, news and trends. 

Our retired members often want a way to get involved by sharing their knowledge and experience. There are plenty of opportunities to help in our mentoring and volunteering roles. 

Get involved 

Your experience is invaluable. If you are mentor or would like to train as a mentor, we have training courses available. This would then enable you to join our mentoring scheme that we’d love our retirees to be involved with. You’ll be matched to a suitable candidate who could turn to you for career advice. There are also several volunteering posts at our Heritage Centre that can be a fun way to share your knowledge with our visitors.
