APA Networks

Networks are playing an increasingly important role in delivering safe surgical services for children in differnt regions about the UK and Ireland. Networks strive to support each hospital and anaesthetist who delivers children's anaesthesia and surgery, and ensure that children have care delivered in the right place, in a timely way and by clinicians with up to date training and skills. As well as Paediatric anaesthetic networks, each region usually has a paediatric critical care and surgical network and these should work together to achieve the above goals.

Below is an attempt to define the current networks within the UK and Ireland and provide some further information about each.
