It is with great sadness that the society learnt of the death of Dr Gordon Bush, a Life Vice-President of the socirety and former Consultant Anaesthetist at Alder Hey Children's Hospital. Dr Bush was an exceptional doctor, possessing great clinical acumen and technical skill, combined with a gentlemanly approach to everyone he met.  He was well known and greatly respected by paediatric anaesthetists throughout the world.

About the society...

The Society was founded in 1930, two years before the Association of Anaesthetists and its motto ‘Dilectis Somnum’ means prized, beloved or delightful sleep.

We hope you will come back to the site regularly but more importantly come to the meetings and meet with friends and colleagues from around the region. While you are here, why not join the society?
