South East Dublin Department of Anaesthesia (SEDDA) Report

Established in 1990 on the initiative of the Department of Health & Children, SEDDA is the aggregation of the Departments of Anaesthesia of seven participating hospitals located in the South East of Dublin. With St. Vincent's University Hospital at the core, the other constituent hospitals are The National Maternity Hospital, The Royal Victoria Eye & Ear Hospital, St. Luke’s Hospital, St. Michael's Hospital, St. Columcille’s Hospital, and the National Rehabilitation Hospital. The primary goal is to promote the realisation of high quality anaesthesia services to patients in each of the participating hospitals.

With over 40 consultant anaesthetists and approximately 40 anaesthesia trainees, SEDDA represents one of the largest anaesthesia Departments in Ireland. The innovative SEDDA approach provided the foundation to build on the cluster of expertise available. It has resulted in new linkages between the SEDDA hospitals and University College Dublin, the Conway Institute and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland being successfully established.
