“Welcome to the trainee area of our website. I represent trainee members of the society in council matters at the four NACCS council meetings each year and manage our Regional Trainee Network. The Network acts as a vital means of communication between the council and trainees across the country on NACCS news, activities, events and study grants, in addition to promoting opportunities available in the wider world of Neuroanaesthesia and Neurocritical Care. On our website you can find details on how to join NACCS as a trainee member, apply for our study grants & travelling fellowships and contact your Regional Representative.”

Regional Trainee Network
We have an evolving Regional Network of trainee representatives. They are a point of contact for all-things NACCS & Neuroanaesthesia in your region and help trainees access the opportunities offered by the council to develop an interest in the subspeciality. If your region is not currently represented and you would like to be involved please contact me on the details above. To contact your Regional Rep please email me and I will put you in touch. Since its inception the network has completed a nationwide survey on training in neuroanaesthesia and we hope that further projects will follow!

Trainee membership of NACCS is only £10 per year and provides you with eligibility for our study grants, heavily discounted ASM rates, regular updates on trainee-relevant NACCS activities and access to the members area of our website. Further details and the application form can be found here
Our trainee handbook is a great place to start for trainees with an interest in the subspecialty to gain further insight into pursuing a career in Neuroanaesthesia or Neurocritical Care. There is also valuable information on the Neuro-relevant topics that appear in the Primary and Final FRCA syllabus.
Study Grants & Travelling Fellowships
The council offers regular study grants open to trainee members of the society. Those currently available are listed below. We also offer trainees who have been members for at least 1 year the opportunity to apply for up to £2500 funding for a Travelling Fellowship.
We have collated a list of Training Fellowships available across the UK. Whilst these have not been endorsed by NACCS they are an excellent place to start your search for further clinical experience in the subspeciality.
