ACSA domain 5 subspecialties


The ACSA standards have five ‘domains’:

  1. The Care Pathway
  2. Equipment, Facilities and Staffing
  3. Patient Experience
  4. Clinical Governance
  5. Subspecialties

Domains one to four aim to cover all aspects of general anaesthetic care provided in all hospitals in the UK.  The fifth domain focuses on the provision of additional levels of specialised care delivered in specialist hospitals or general hospitals with a large and separate sub-specialty unit.
