For Surgeons

Greenslopes Anaesthesia Services commenced in 2002 with 5 anaesthetists (Drs Lew, Richards, Shadforth, Soong & Thang) after the Repatriation Hospital run by the Department of Veterans Affairs was transitioned to Greenslopes Private Hospital (GPH). The associateship has served the patients and doctors of GPH and the doctors continue this strong support of GPH’s surgeons and proceduralists. 

The associateship has grown significantly since then and doctors within the associateship provide anaesthetic services to all the major private hospitals in Brisbane. The service also extends to many smaller private hospitals and day surgeries throughout Brisbane. A list of the hospitals currently serviced by members of the associateship can be found here.
