National Anaesthetic Technician Day – 8th March 2022

National Anaesthetic Technician Day is fast approaching – Tuesday 8th March. While we may struggle to celebrate as we would like to, there is still the opportunity to place posters around your workplace to promote the profession and all the hard work you do. We have created a couple of poster options – one premade for your use, and other with a blank space for you to have the freedom to put photos from your own region so showcase what you do where you are. Please click below for whichever one suits your needs best.

Information on the location and who to contact for a familarisation is now updated within the Canditate information link on the Registration Exam page. Apologies for any inconvenience that has occurred as a result of this change.
