"One not to be missed - the meeting was genuinely the best yet" 2022 delegate

A message from the president

In May 2023 the RA-UK annual scientific meeting will take place in the wonderful city of Newcastle in the North East of England, once again providing a unique opportunity for all attendees to build their own, personalized meeting experience in regional anaesthesia and perioperative point of care ultrasound. The meeting will focus on regional anaesthesia and POCUS and comprise of lectures, live ultrasound demonstrations, interactive audience polls, open discussion as well as a special joint session with the Intensive Care Society focusing on regional anaesthesia in Intensive Care Medicine. There will also be an opportunity for networking, informal conversation and hands-on workshops.


This will be the biggest regional anaesthesia meeting in the UK in 2023 with over 30 transatlantic, European and UK expert faculty. Attendance at RA-UK meetings has been increasing annually. Our first ever virtual Annual Scientific Meeting in 2021 was a great success with nearly 1000 delegates tuning in to watch the conference, allowing RA-UK to keep up its tradition of delivering ground-breaking educational content to medical professionals. Following on from this over 700 delegates registered for our first ever hybrid meeting #RAUKISURA22. This was also huge success with over 20 million twitter impressions recorded. #RAUK23 will again be a hybrid format allowing delegates to participate either in-person or virtually. Delegates from all over the world will therefore be able to choose how to attend based on their need.


The venue for the 2023 meeting is the Hilton Gateshead. Located in the heart of the vibrant city of Newcastle the Hilton is an impressive venue ideal for conferences, close to the beautiful North East England coastline and all the associated heritage. The North East is easily accessible, renowned for inspiration and innovation and has a worldwide reputation in life sciences, technology, offshore and marine work and business.  With its famous friendly welcome we are sure Newcastle will be the perfect setting for our meeting. I hope that you will join me along with all our wonderful faculty in Newcastle in May 2023 and experience the unique RA-UK atmosphere.

Absolutely brilliant meeting. Best educational meeting I have ever been to. Big credit to the organisers for the new format

Feedback from the RA-UK 2021 Virtual ASM

Excellent symposium. Very much covered what I had hoped and more. Left me with more enthusiasm for regional anesthesia.
