Linkman Scheme

Almost all hospitals that provide surgical services for children have appointed Clinical Leads for Paediatric Anaesthesia. The APAGBI is keen to maintain links with all paediatric anaesthetists, particularly those working in non-specialist hospitals. This allows us to disseminate relevant information more effectively, consult more widely on aspects of clinical practice and service models for children’s surgery, and obtain feed-back from those actually providing these services.  Effective links are very important because the APAGBI is often asked by other bodies, such as the Department of Health and the Royal Colleges, for professional advice.
