What we think

Putting patient outcomes first

We’re proud to carry out policy-focused work that aims to support patient care from the moment surgery is contemplated through to full recovery, no matter who they or where they live.


The College is shaping policy in a way that is putting anaesthesia at the heart of the narrative. As the voice of a combined membership of more than 24,000 Fellows and Members, we speak on their behalf, making sure their views are reflected in what we say. And, as the experts in the field, what we say is evidence-led, authoritative and independent. We’re also solutions-focused, and actively want to help decision-makers and partners achieve the best outcomes for patients.
