All of the STAAG anaesthetic doctors hold Consultant posts at the St Andrew's Centre for Plastic Surgery and Burns, Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford. The centre has an international reputation for excellence in plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery and all of our consultants practice regularly in these clinical areas.
All our Consultants undergo a yearly appraisal which takes into account their private and cosmetic work in addition to their NHS caseload. You can therefore be assured that you are in the safest of hands and being treated using the most up-to-date drugs and techniques.
All of our Consultants have to be revalidated by the GMC every 5 years. Revalidation is the process by which all licensed doctors are required to demonstrate that they are up to date and fit to practise in their chosen field and are able to provide a good level of care. This means that holding a licence to practise is becoming an indicator that the doctor continues to meet the professional standards set by the GMC and the specialist standard set by the Royal College of Anaesthetists.
Whilst our Consultants routinely work with one or two individual surgeons, we also provide a group practice approach which enables us to provide you with a reliable service 7 days a week.
All our Consultants practice in a similar way, as reflects their close working relationships in the NHS. They also hold regular clinical review meetings to ensure a culture of ongoing learning and shared experiences within the group practice. You can therefore be confident of receiving excellent care from whomever of our Anaesthetic Consultants you meet before your operation.
