We are 1 of only 7 UK centers to offer simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplantation and 1 of only 2 Trusts to offer peritonectomy. Our two emergency theatres are staffed by dedicated consultant anaesthetists throughout the extended working day with daily orthopedic trauma lists and regular maxillo-facial trauma lists to provide for the busy emergency workload that the Trust receives providing excellent teaching opportunities.
