The Royal College of Anaesthetists is committed to developing a collaborative programme for the delivery of perioperative care across the UK; to deliver more efficient healthcare and better outcomes for patients from contemplation of surgery until full recovery.

Following our stakeholder engagement event in January 2015, we are working with our stakeholders to implement changes and work towards making perioperative medicine a reality for every patient considering surgery.

Let’s make perioperative medicine a reality
