Narcosia Anaesthesia Group provides business services to specialist anaesthetists with a longstanding tradition of excellence in the field of anaesthesia.
The anaesthetists who use this service value clinical ability as well as ‘non-technical skills’ – human characteristics that promote a culture of safety. As a result, they have built a reputation among surgeons and patients for providing safe, reliable, compassionate and quality healthcare.
This longstanding commitment to quality is reflected in the roles and awards that current and past anaesthetists have held. Current anaesthetists include those who have topped the nation in their specialist exams, have held prominent positions in professional bodies such as the Australian Society of Anaesthetists, have been examiners with the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists, have been Supervisors of Training for trainee anaesthetists, and have been recognised for their research into ways to make anaesthesia safer.
Current anaesthetists also include those who have given their time and expertise to provide charitable care overseas.
The anaesthetists supported by Narcosia Anaesthesia’s services aim to remain at the forefront of the profession by placing a high value on characteristics such as clinical excellence, integrity, humility and teamwork.
The Narcosia Anaesthesia group had its beginnings in 1954 when Dr Roger Bennett commenced providing anaesthesia services in Brisbane. Ballow Chambers, on Wickham Terrace, was the first location chosen. Dr Dan Hogg joined him in 1962, however Dr Bennett died shortly after in 1967. The location moved to SDK house on Fortescue Street in 1977 and acquired the name “Narcosia Anaesthesia Group” in that year. The move to the present location at Hill House, Boundary Street, Spring Hill occurred in 1989, where to this day Narcosia provides business services to specialist anaesthetists.
Past anaesthetists have had distinguished careers in anaesthesia and established the culture of excellence that continues to this day.
From humble beginnings Narcosia now provides support services for specialist anaesthetists in Brisbane. Anaesthetists visit most hospitals and day surgeries in the greater Brisbane area, and continue the tradition of excellence established by past anaesthetists.
Narcosia specialists operate individual Specialist Anaesthetic practices. The Narcosia Service Entity provides Business Services to these Anaesthetists under terms of a Service Agreement. Payments are made to individual doctors rather than the Service Entity. The Service Agreement is not one of partnership or a contract of employment between the Service Entity and the Specialist Anaesthetist.
