Specialist Hospital

A postgraduate centre for ophthalmic surgery. The days can be extremely busy, with trainees giving many anaesthetics, both regional and GA, on high turnover lists.

No. trainees:-4-6

Transport

Moorfields Eye Hospital is situated on City Road a short distance from Old Street Underground / BR Station. The way to the hospital is well signposted.

Clinical Experience

About 23,000 patients are operated on per year. An increasing number of these have a local anaesthetic, currently about 10,000. Some of these anaesthetics are given by the anaesthetists and all junior staff are given the opportunity to learn local ophthalmic anaesthesia. A significant proportion of the work is paediatric. Practice at Moorfields for GA now includes a large proportion of TIVA, trainees get the opportunity to train in and use this technique.

Rota

There is currently a 1:4-6 prospective rota, currently non-resident on call. This varies if we have less trainees, or may be diluted by the fellow (when in post). Emergency operations do not take place at night. Trainees on call usually leave by 9pm weekdays, 6pm at weekends and are not on call from home.

Teaching

Induction takes place on day one and includes tutorials on several relevant topics. Weekly meetings are held with educational content intended for senior trainees. Trainees are expected to present on one occasion during the three months.
Trainees are encouraged to complete modules in ophthalmology, day surgery and sedation. In addition work-place based assessments and log-book numbers can be acquired for spiral-training in paediatrics.
There are anaesthetic journals and books available in the department. The main hospital library also has anaesthetic books, and the librarians will assist in obtaining other materials. We expect senior SpRs to attend the pan-London training days, and give as much support as we can to those sitting the final fellowship. It is incredibly rare for Moorfields to receive trainees who have not passed primary.

Research Opportunities

SpR rotations are 3 months. This does not allow time for fruitful research. However, an audit project remains possible. In addition we frequently have a fellow who pursues research and audit projects with support from others in the department. The fellowship is 6 months in length and appointment is by competitive application 6 months to 1 year ahead of start date. Please contact the college tutor for details.

Other departmental commitments include anaesthesia for paediatric oncology procedures, and also vascular access and pain management (accredited for Higher and Advanced training in pain medicine)

We are one of the few centres that specialize exclusively in anaesthesia for nearly all types of adult cancer surgery. This year our department has been awarded the honour of hosting and running the Global Anaesthesia for Cancer Conference 2016. We are a predominantly consultant delivered service and are unique to other centres in that the majority of our anaesthesia is total intravenous anaesthesia a technique that results in some better outcomes for patients then traditional gas anaesthesia. We have an extended number of roles outside the operating theatre including anaesthesia for endoscopy and Interventional radiology. Additionally anaesthetists run a number of other high volume services which are integral to the day to day running of the Marsden. These include:

- a high risk/ pre surgical assessment service (currently in terms of patient attendance once of the largest services in the trust seeing about 8000 patients annually);

- a central venous access and chest drain service;

- a specialized cancer pain acute and chronic pain service within them a number of specialized services including acupuncture and HIFU

-a high volume paediatric sedation service for chemotherapy and oncological procedures

-a simulation centre for high fidelity medical simulation



The critical care unit provides care for complex post-op patients, and adult medical oncology patients, and is accredited for training up to Advanced Level.

We run an anaesthetic pre-assessment unit which now includes a cardiopulmonary exercise (CPET) system.

The Marsden is also recognised as a centre of excellence for anaesthesia training and we attract trainees from the Imperial and North Central London Schools of anaesthesia. We offer a number of innovative anaesthesia fellowships and were the first centre to recognise the importance of patient safety and created the role of a ‘patient safety fellow’.

The department has published a number of articles relating to oncology and anaesthesia. A research program for critical care and cancer is currently developing, and recent projects investigating CPET testing and outcome are in progress. The department is also a collaborating centre in trials such as PREVENT(iv iron) and METS (CPET testing). The department of pain management undertakes research into cancer pain and has a research fellow post.
We have an active audit program, and projects are available for all trainees to be involved with. The ICIP system (electronic ICU and anaesthetic records) now allows large audits to be undertaken without manual search of notes. Many audit projects have been presented as oral or poster presentations.
