Our consultants

All Chester Anaesthetics partners work as consultant anaesthetists at the Countess of Chester NHS Foundation Trust.

We have all completed five or six years at medical school, at least two years’ subsequent experience working in other medical specialties and between six and eight years’ postgraduate training in anaesthesia, including time in intensive care medicine.

In addition to our NHS consultant work, we provide about 1500 anaesthetics every year in the private sector.

We have extensive experience in anaesthesia for all types of surgery found in a typical district general hospital.
