Let's fight fatigue together!

The Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI), Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) and the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (FICM) see it as our collective duty to raise awareness and offer practical solutions to help shift the dial on perceptions of fatigue self-assessment and fatigue risk management within the NHS.


However, as the impact of fatigue is not limited to anaesthesia and intensive care medicine, we're garnering the support of other healthcare professions, presenting an opportunity for multiple NHS specialities to work together to tackle fatigue in the workplace.

Thank you to our supporters
