The work of APA Council is wide-ranging and this includes areas of activity that require ongoing and regular input. This work is generally overseen by individual committees which report to council.

These committees include members from council and co-optees who may be able to provide valuable input into the work of the committee. Most committees meet on a regular basis, either in person or increasingly by video conferencing.

Much of the preparatory work goes on behind the scenes and each committee will have different flows of work which reflect their individual areas of responsibility. An overview of the work of each committee, it's membership and terms of reference are included in the menu.

The President and Honorary Secretary of the APA are ex-officio members of all these committees.

I am a Consultant Anaesthetist based at the Medical Specialist Group in Guernsey, Channel Islands. We provide a mix of paediatric and adult anaesthetic services, and I am currently our department’s paediatric and safeguarding lead. I am also Vice Chair of the department and postgraduate education lead for the hospital. One of my key interests is education and training in low and middle income countries and I regularly volunteer overseas with the eye care charity Orbis International.

I am a consultant in paediatric anaesthesia based at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

I look forward to continuing this education and training work with the APA.
