Advertising and Deadlines

The Royal College of Anaesthetists’ Bulletin is published bi-monthly and distributed to over 17,000 anaesthetists worldwide, the vast majority being in the UK.  Being so widely distributed, it is obviously seen by many other professionals who work alongside anaesthetists.  Advertisements for courses and meetings from anaesthetic societies, or those organisations that are of interest to anaesthetists, are accepted at the discretion of the Editor or Editorial Board.

Completion of the form below is required when submitting an advert to be included. Please contact for separate commercial advertising rates.

Please note the following:

  • The size of the advert is to some extent dictated by content and the layout of all adverts will be in keeping with the Bulletin style and design.
  • It is not possible to include loose inserts in any issue.
  • Advertisements must fit with the aims and aspirations of the RCoA and be related to anaesthesia, critical care or pain medicine.
  • The deadline for each issue and that issue’s approximate mailing date are listed below.  Please ensure your advertisement is submitted by the deadline of your chosen issue.  However, it should be noted that only a certain amount of advertising space is available in each issue and publication is not guaranteed.  Advertising space will therefore be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
  • All adverts will be published in full colour and in portrait orientation only.
  • Each advert is generally placed to the rear of the Bulletin amongst the other notices.
  • If you wish to include different advert sizes in the same issue, please complete and submit a separate form for each size of advert to be published.
