Led by the Royal College of Anaesthetists to facilitate cross-organisational working on perioperative care for the benefit of patients. A partnership between patients and the public, other professional stakeholders including Medical Royal Colleges, NHS England and the equivalent bodies responsible for healthcare in the other UK devolved nations. The aim is to improve quality of care, support patients and professionals as well as influence policy, technology, research and innovation.
