Our anaesthetic services at Circle are provided by some of the leading anaesthetists in the country, offering a wide variety of services. You will be assessed by your specialist on a case by case basis with a personal level of care in order to provide you with the best treatment possible.
Before an operation or procedure requiring any level of anaesthesia, you will need to fill in our health questionnaire, which will be reviewed by a pre-assessment nurse. Depending on the answers to the questions, you may then be called back for further tests in order to assess the best anaesthetic method for you.
If any problems are found in these tests, you may be called for a more detailed anaesthetic assessment to discover whether it is safe for the surgery to go ahead. Occasionally, surgery may need to be postponed or cancelled because the risks outweigh the benefits, our first priority is our patients and their safety.
