For Surgeons

Greenslopes Anaesthesia Services commenced in 2002 with 5 anaesthetists (Drs Lew, Richards, Shadforth, Soong & Thang) after the Repatriation Hospital run by the Department of Veterans Affairs was transitioned to Greenslopes Private Hospital (GPH) run by Ramsay Healthcare. The Practice served the patients and doctors of Greenslopes Private Hospital and continues to strongly support GPH. The practice has grown significantly since then and now provides anaesthetic services to all major private hospitals in Brisbane including Wesley Private Hospital, Mater Private Hospital, St Andrew’ War Memorial Hospital, Brisbane Private Hospital, North West Private Hospital and St Vincent’s Private Hospital Northside. Our service also extends to many smaller private hospitals and day surgeries throughout Brisbane.

Why work with Greenslopes Anaesthesia Services?

Breadth of coverage

    Any surgical specialty

    Our anaesthetists provide anaesthetic services for a broad range of surgical specialties. You may wish to refer to the Our Anaesthetists section on our website for more details on our individual anaesthetists and their experience. Alternatively, you can phone our friendly administration team, who can either provide you with a list of the available anaesthetists who cover your surgical specialty at the locations you wish to operate or simply select an appropriate anaesthetist for you.

    Any hospital

    Our anaesthetists service all major private hospitals in Brisbane and many of the smaller private hospitals and day surgery centres. We will usually already have anaesthetists accredited when and where you need their services. In the unlikely event that we don’t have an available anaesthetist accredited at your operating facility, we can generally arrange accreditation for one of our available anaesthetists at short notice.

    Any type of cover

    Whether you need anaesthetic services for regular surgical lists, adhoc lists or procedures or emergency procedures, we will find someone to cover your needs.

    If your regular anaesthetist is on leave, we will organise alternative cover.

    Any time

    Our anaesthetic service is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year
