We are unable to answer

Question 1. As the type of anaesthetic/sedation is not recorded consistently against inpatient data.

Question 2.
For years 2013 ,2014, 2015 2016 day the Number anesthetists/ trainees / other staff Primarily administering Anesthesia and/ or Sedation for surgery and procedures conducted in children
a) 0-4 weeks
b) 4 weeks- 1 year
c) 1 year - 16 years

We can only give you headcount of staff attached to the anaesthetics department for this time period at end of year census:
2013 = 46
2014 = 45
