The Bulletin is the quarterly magazine for members of the Royal College of Anaesthetists, featuring a wide range of insights from across the specialty, as well as news from the College. Last year we launched the digital Bulletin, giving you full access to the magazine on any device in any location.  

The Bulletin is provided in a digital-only format, available to all members through My RCoA, your personal membership portal. If you haven’t already set up your account, please register on My RCoA to access this benefit. You'll need the email address linked to your membership

Bulletin: Spring 2024 is out now.  To access, you need to be a fellow or member of the College.


Articles for submission, together with any declaration of interest, should be sent to the Editor, Dr Ramai Santhirapala. Please ensure you have read the submission guidelines below before sending us your article.

Letters to the Editor

Please submit letters for publication to bulletin@rcoa.ac.uk.

A representative sample of submissions will be selected, edited and included in the next available issue of the Bulletin (space permitting). Please note that the views and opinions expressed are those of the individual authors concerned and not necessarily of the College itself. Letters should be no more than 250 words which includes any references.
