Great Ormond Street is one of the world’s leading specialist Paediatric Hospitals. It is situated in central London by Russell Square. It is a quaternary referral centre receiving children from all over the world.

There is a large friendly anaesthetic department with over 30 consultants and 26 trainees.  Fifteen of the training posts are linked to the London schools of anaesthesia rotations which can be arranged through the local TPDs.  In addition there are 11 posts that are available for senior anaesthetic trainees for 12 months which include specialist fellowships in Simulation, Pain and Cardiac.

As a trainee at Great Ormond Street you will gain an unparalleled experience in paediatric anaesthesia for a vast range of surgical procedures in children suffering from an extensive range of  medical conditions. Trainees undertake 6 week blocks allowing them to experience the different anaesthetic specialities. These blocks include cardiac, neurosurgery/craniofacial/spinal, ENT, cleft, plastics, general and urology. The majority of trainees spend 3 months in PICU/NICU or CICU. The on-calls and out of hours are covered on site by 2 registrars, at least one of which will be familiar with working at GOSH.
