SASWR Travelling Bursary

Open to trainees and other non-consultant doctors from December 2018

Kick-started by an anonymous consultant member of SASWR who gave a sum of money to be used ‘to support trainees’, the SASWR committee have decided to provide ongoing annual finance for a travelling bursary to support members of the society to travel overseas to work for the benefit of others in a voluntary or low-paid capacity.

Up to £1000 a year will be made available and will usually be awarded to one individual. In exceptional circumstances the bursary may be split.

All trainees and non-consultant grade anaesthetists who are current members of SASWR are eligible to apply. Anaesthetists employed in the South West region may join SASWR in order to make themselves eligible.

Application is by writing to the Honorary Secretary via our admin email ( The text should be around 300 words and should outline the nature of the work to be undertaken, and give details of any other funding sources.

A decision will be made by the Hon Sec in consultation with other committee members. The award submission deadline is September 1st. We will try and make the funds available as soon as they are needed, once a decision has been made.

The recipient will be expected to write an article for Anaesthesia Points West about their experiences on their return.

That’s all the boring stuff. This is great news for members of SASWR and we are really grateful to the anonymous benefactor (only they and I know who they are!) who has inaugurated this bursary and enthused us to support it in years to come. Please tell your colleagues about it. We look forward to a flood of applications after the autumn meeting in Bath, where the bursary will be formally announced.
