Trainees rotate through teaching and district general hospitals in north west London, as well as some specialist hospitals in central London


Hammersmith is famous for its research achievements and has a large community of Imperial College London postgraduate medical students and researchers. It is home to the West London Renal and Transplant Centre, two large cancer treatment centres and a specialist cardiac service with a 24/7 primary angioplasty centre. The Clinical Imaging Centre, which opened in June 2007, is the largest in Europe. The Medical Research Council's Clinical Sciences Centre is based at the site and works in partnership with the hospital and Imperial College London.

The anaesthetic service is delivered exclusively by consultants and senior fellows as well as senior trainees under direct supervision. We strive to deliver the highest standards of care, working in close conjunction with other departments in the hospital. We embrace innovation and continually deliver care within clinical governance guidelines. The service has a robust and active teaching programme for trainees and consultants alike and is involved in research projects at local, national and international levels. We provide anaesthesia for patients undergoing the following specialist areas of surgery: 

  • Hepatobiliary and endocrine surgery 
  • Cardiothoracic surgery and percutaneous cardiological procedures
  • Renal failure and transplant surgery
  • Reproductive and oncological gynaecological surgery 

We work in subspecialist consultant groups within multidisciplinary teams to deliver these highly specialised services 


We have a number of clinical fellowships; posts are advertised through NHS Jobs and are for periods of 6 months to a year. Currently, we have the following opportunities: 

  • One clinical fellow in Cardiac Anaesthesia
  • One clinical fellow in Hepatobiliary Anaesthesia 
  • One clinical fellow in Renal Anaesthesia
  • Two clinical fellows in Obstetric Anaesthesia at Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea Hospital 

Please contact Dr Scott Kemp or Dr Susan Kirby for more information.
