Dr Jonathan Womack
Consultant in Anaesthesia specialising in Regional Anaesthesia, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
I am a Consultant Anaesthetist and regional anaesthesia lead at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle- upon- Tyne. My specific interests in regional anaesthesia include; trauma analgesia, regional anaesthesia for breast surgery, regional anaesthesia for upper limb surgery and training.
I was one of the first cohort of students on the MSc in regional anaesthesia. I teach regularly on cadaveric courses and I have taught on a number of national workshops (GAT, BAOIO), though this is my first time as faculty at RA-UK.
I recently had the opportunity to travel to Sierra Leone with the British Society for Surgery of the Hand. I saw first-hand the enormous potential of regional anaesthesia in resource-poor healthcare.
My other interests include travel, so I’m looking forward to finally visiting Belfast and seeing some of Northern Ireland.
