The St. Thomas Hospital Birth Centre (HBC) delivers around 7,000 babies each year. It is a tertiary referral centre and there is a high-risk caseload. Patients benefit from a top-class obstetric medical team with whom the anaesthetic department liaises closely.


Successful candidates will work normal daytime (08-17:00), as well as on-call (08-20:30 & 20-08:30) shifts on the HBC. There is an active weekly consultant-led educational meeting at which you will have the opportunity to present. As well as covering the core obstetric anaesthetic curriculum the programme will include journal clubs, invited speakers on hot topics as well as basic instruction in research methodology.

We provide instruction in neuraxial ultrasound and there are on-going research, and service improvement, projects with which to get involved. The hope is that you will present the results of such projects at either the OAA or the SOAP scientific meetings.
