Society of Anaesthetists of the South Western Region

Log in

Members Area


The society has over 150 trainee members and they form a vital part of the society. We encourage all trainees in the South West to enroll. The meetings are an educational and social event – befriend your colleagues away from work, improve your CV, and learn something too. It’s an absolute myth that SASWR is a society for grey-haired anaesthetists.

As a trainee member, you enjoy all the benefits of membership, but pay reduced subscription and meeting registration fees, and reduced charges for the society dinners. You should consider submitting an article to the Society journal, Points West. Audit, research and general interest articles are warmly welcomed and are a great way to add to your ‘publications’ area of your CV. We will not hold your copyrights so you can still chase that peer-review publication as well.

Supporting Trainees

Two trainee representatives from the two Deaneries sit on the SASWR committee. See the contacts page.

There are bursaries and prizes available to trainee members, The Intersurgical Prize has possibly the most valuable cash award around, and competition (although strong) is less than National prizes, such as GAT.

Affiliated trainee networks 

SASWR proudly supports the region’s two trainee research networks, STAR and SWARM.  

From 2020, SASWR also provides support for the trainee-led sustainability networks, SAP and SEASN . These are respective subsidiaries of STAR and SWARM. The broad aims shared by both organisations are:

Raise awareness of the impact healthcare is having on the environment, for current, and future generations

Reduce the negative impact healthcare is having on the environment

Promote and support high quality collaborative research, quality improvement and audit, within the region, in the field of sustainable healthcare

Co-ordinate regional collaborations, and act as a point of contact for national and international collaborations.
