The role of the anaesthesiologist in a hospital can sometimes be a globally renowned invisible one – people are usually aware of who their surgeon is, but they might not be aware of a noteworthy player in their hospital journey – the anaesthesiologist, a highly qualified, specialist doctor playing a hugely valued medical role of critical importance. The ESA not only strives to innovate our field, provide support and educational opportunities to those in the profession, and make significant and critical connections to our vast network – we also aim to educate the public about the role of the anaesthesiologist involved in their care and how we can work together to improve patient safety for everyone, everywhere.
