What we do

Jersey Anaesthetic Group is the sole provider of Private Anaesthesia in Jersey. All our doctors are UK trained Consultants with substantive Consultant positions at Jersey General Hospital. We are registered to practice with both the Jersey Royal Court and the UK General Medical Council (GMC) and have all been revalidated. We are all Fellows of the Royal College of Anaesthetists, have annual appraisal and professional indemnity insurance.

We provide a 24 hour 365 days per year Anaesthetic, Pain and Intensive Care Medicine Consultant delivered service. We pride ourselves on ensuring a high quality, patient centred service. We are a team who will work together to ensure the best possible outcome for you. Together we have introduced many innovations into healthcare in Jersey. For example, we introduced enhanced recovery for joint replacement and we strongly believe the service we offer is world class.


We are highly skilled in providing sedation for minor procedures. In some cases this will be in conjunction with local or regional anaesthesia.

Often your surgeon will ask us to provided sedation for your procedure since we are uniquely skilled to deliver sedation in the safest, most comfortable way.

However, if you are having any medical procedure which requires sedation and you would specifically like this to be provided by an anaesthetist then please contact us.

For further information on sedation please see the leaflet “Anaesthesia Explained” produced by the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

We provide General Anaesthesia for all types of surgical procedures undertaken in Jersey. Jersey Anaesthetic Group are all Consultant doctors with a minimum of 14 years training with years of additional experience. We are responsible for ensuring you remain safe throughout your operation and remain comfortable afterwards.

We are highly skilled at managing expected and unexpected complications, the side effects of the potent anaesthetic drugs, peri-operative fluid or blood loss, and much more.

For further information on general anaesthesia please see the leaflet “Anaesthesia Explained” produced by the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

General Anaesthesia

Regional anaesthesia

We offer a full range of regional anaesthetic techniques. We will always discuss the anaesthetic options available to you, including the specific benefits, risks and alternatives.

We want you to have the optimal anaesthetic and best possible post-operative pain relief. Therefore, your anaesthetic will be specific to you.

We do not want this to be influenced by the anaesthetic fee. Consequently, there is no additional fee for any local or regional analgesic techniques.

For further information on regional anaesthesia please see the leaflet.

Dr Calum McClymont is our Consultant Pain Specialist. Further information can be found on the dedicated Pain website.

Pain Medicine

Intensive Care/High Dependency Care Medicine

We offer a 24 hour 7 day Intensive Care service at Jersey General Hospital.

If you are having an operation and are likely to need post operative High Dependency or Intensive Care admission then we will always discuss this with you during your pre-operative assessment visit.

Our Intensive Care Consultants are dual trained in both Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine.

All patients will be requested to attend a nurse led pre-operative assessment at the hospital. This is included in the fee charged by Jersey General Hospital.

Occasionally your surgeon or Jersey Anaesthetic Group will ask you to attend for a pre-operative anaesthetic assessment with a Consultant Anaesthetist. This is to provide you with a personalised risk assessment and to ensure you are in the best possible health before the proposed procedure.

If you are asked to attend a Consultant pre-operative assessment clinic there is an additional fee.

Peri-operative Medicine including Pre-operative Risk Assessment

Obstetric Anaesthesia and Analgesia

We offer a 24 hour 7 day, consultant delivered, obstetric anaesthesia and analgesia service. Your obstetrician will be able to give you more information.

If you would like to discuss labour analgesia or anaesthesia for caesarean section then we also offer antenatal anaesthetic clinics. Please contact Tina (+44 1534 630211) to make an appointment.

If you have an operation we will insert an intravenous (IV) access device, normally a peripheral IV cannula, immediately before your anaesthetic.

Sometimes your surgeon may ask us to help them obtain IV access at another part of your inpatient stay.

We are highly skilled at inserting IV access devices and can use advanced techniques including using ultrasound assistance. We are also trained in the insertion of more complex devices such as central venous catheters and peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC).

If we are asked to insert such a device, or a peripheral IV cannula during another part of your inpatient stay, then there will be an additional charge.
