Dr Ben Gupta BMedSci BM BS FRCA
As a consultant anaesthetist one of my core skills is expertise in central venous access. I have developed a significant sub-specialist interest in this area to encompass expertise in long term central venous access devices (CVADS) and I place these devices on a weekly basis in the NHS during my work at the Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre (part of University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS trust). In 2018 I started offering this service to patients at both Spire Bristol and Nuffield Bristol hospitals and am currently the only professional able to offer this service in Southwest England.
I qualified in 2004 from the University of Nottingham Medical School. After completing my training as a junior doctor at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, I commenced training in anaesthesia in Bristol becoming a consultant at University Hospitals Bristol and Weston (UHBW) NHS Foundation Trust in 2016.
As well as an interest in vascular access I also anaesthetise regularly for orthopaedic surgery, and obstetrics. I also maintain an interest in anaesthesia for resource poor environments having previously worked for the medical NGO Medecins Sans Frontieres and regularly teach and publish in this area.
Memberships: I am a member of the National Infusion and Vascular Access Society, The Royal College of Anaesthetists and the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland
