The Age Anaesthesia Association is at the forefront of bringing together anaesthetists, surgeons and geriatricians in the development of a cohesive approach to the management of older surgical patients. Since the AAA was formed in 1990, our mission has been to promote evidence based, high quality perioperative care for all older surgical patients through using our national collaborative voice and joint working with the AAGBI, BGS and RCS.

The AAA council currently has one vacancy for a council representative - a Trainee Representative from Surgery. The successful candidate will be expected to attend the twice-yearly Council Meetings and the Annual Scientific Meeting for the duration of a 3 year term (or until CCT achieved).

Surgical Trainees: You must be in specialist training and have a demonstrable commitment to service development, quality improvement or research and of course an interest in perioperative medicine for older people. Experience working within multidisciplinary teams and a mastery of social media are desirable extras!

To apply, please send an expression of interest (approx. 100-250 words) and two-page CV to Lucy Parkinson, Society Secretariat, via or call 0114 299 5922 for more information
