The Anesthetic Department also runs an Acute Pain Service throughout the hospital and provides a 24-hour epidural post-op pain relief service and labour analgesia for pregnant women in the maternity unit. Anaesthetic services are also available in the CT and MRI scanners and the GI Endoscopy Unit.

The department is academically active and regular teaching program is run in the department. DNB students are encouraged to actively participate in departmental teaching activities and have an excellent record of success for DNB exams.
