Dr Chris Jones has been a consultant Anaesthetist at the Royal Surrey County Hospital since 2013 with responsibility for the high-risk fellowships, and medical student anaesthesia attachments. He has an interest in research and anaesthesia for major oncology surgery including HPB, OG and major urology. I have completed fellowships in high risk anaesthesia at Royal Surrey County Hospital; liver anaesthesia at Kings College London and pre-hospital care in Sydney Australia.
I have recently submitted my Medical Doctorate (MD) at the University of Surrey. My thesis is entitled Enhanced Recovery after Liver Resection Surgery. This was a single blinded randomised controlled trial (ISRCTN03274575) conducted at the Royal Surrey County Hospital. We demonstrated a reduced length of stay from a historical median of 9 days down to 4. We also measured quality of life by the means of EQ-5D, and demonstrated an improved quality of life and an earlier return to normal daily activities. We also demonstrated an average cost saving of over £950 per patient as a result of this programme.
I have received additional training on “Evidence Based Practice and Critical Appraisal” and “Principles of Research Methods” both run by the University of Surrey.
