Training opportunities in Swansea


At Swansea we perform a complete range of ultrasound guided nerve blocks as single shot or catheter technique in the perioperative setting. Ultrasound is also used for most chronic pain interventions. We deliver training in line with the regional anaesthesia modules outlined by the Royal College of Anaesthetists.


We offer both Higher and Advanced modules in regional anaesthesia as well as a 6 month fellowship.


We have run courses since 2004 which are recognised for the ESRA diploma and consist of cadaveric anatomy (our own specific dissections for regional anaesthesia), model scanning, phantom needling and hands on in theatre training.
