Welcome to the NUSGRA website of the Group of Regional Anaesthetists (GORA), RVI

Over the next few months and beyond, we will be curating new learning tools and resources at this website, created bespoke for the techniques employed at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle. 

It will serve as a useful resource for trainees rotating to the RVI and undertaking modules of training in regional anaesthesia, as well as patients preparing for surgery on our day case hand unit. 

Please check back regularly for new material!
