About Us

You will see from exploring AnaesthesiaUK that we are dedicated to using the potential of the Internet in providing medical information, education and communication to Anaesthetists in training. We feel that there are no sites dedicated to the FRCA examination. This site has revision topics and examinations questions that anaesthetists in training may find useful. Below are some details of who works at AnaesthesiaUK and the educational partners that enable us to produce the content that we presently have on the site. The site is free to use and is aimed at Anaesthetic Professionals mostly in the UK. We hope that you find this site useful and it goes someway to helping you pass the FRCA hurdle and also forms part of your Continuing Professional Development.
