Welcome to the new website that describes the Department of Anaesthesia at the Galway Clinic.
We want to make it easy for you to learn about us –who works here, what services we provide and how we provide care.
We also want to provide you with information with regards to the Anaesthetic you will receive – whether it is General Anaesthesia (GA), Regional Anaesthesia (RA) or Procedural Sedation and Analgesia (PSA).
18 consultants staff the department, most of whom work between the Galway Clinic and Galway University Hospital sites providing expertise in the clinical departments of Anaesthesia, Intensive Care and Pain Medicine.
At present, there is a theatre compliment of six general theatres including a large hybrid theatre with an additional two dedicated endoscopy / minor procedures suites.
In 2016, we performed over 6000 cases under General Anaesthesia and over 4000 with Procedural Sedation and Analgesia.
