Nerve blocks for surgery on the shoulder, arm or hand

1st edition, April 2015

This leaflet is for anyone who is thinking about having a nerve block for an operation on the shoulder, arm or hand. It will be of particular interest to people who would prefer not to have a general anaesthetic.  It has been written by patients, patient representatives and anaesthetists, working together.

Regional Anaesthesia UK has produced a video for patients having nerve blocks which you can watch by clicking on the image below.
