Severn Trainee Anaesthetic Research Group

The Severn Trainee Anaesthetic Research (STAR) Group's aim is to expand and enhance the opportunities for engagement in high quality research and quality improvement projects for it members within the Severn Deanery.


We are affiliated with the Bristol School of Anaesthesia and Society of Anaesthetists of the South Western Region (SASWR), and are a registered company. 


We are involved with the annual national RAFT projects, as well as regional and local projects - all are open for STAR members to get involved with, with details on our website.

Have an idea for a project? Contact us here to pitch your idea.


STAR membership is open to all anaesthetic/ICM Trainees in the Severn deanery. ODPs interested in research and non-training grade doctors, foundation doctors and medical students with an interest and commitment to anaesthesia/ICM are also welcome to apply. If you wish to get involved and join, then contact us or come along to one of our meetings
