Welcome Dr Ian Self

last modified Jun 30, 2020 09:35 AM

We are delighted to welcome Ian Self to The Queen’s Veterinary School Hospital as Principal Clinical Anaesthetist, working with the Hospital team to deliver excellence in clinical care and student teaching.
Ian graduated from Liverpool Vet School in 1995. There followed a period in practice (mixed, small animal and emergency) around the South Manchester and Cheshire areas before Ian developed an interest in anaesthesia and analgesia. This resulted in a return into the university system in order to obtain a Diploma in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia. Ian has spent the last few years running clinics and leading teams in university hospitals at the RVC and Nottingham.
Clinically, Ian enjoys carrying out high quality anaesthesia especially for critical patients and is also passionate about pain control. Ian will be launching and running pain management clinics in the hospital working closely with physiotherapists and specialists in other disciplines.

As we adapt to the evolving guidance on Coronavirus (COVID-19) we remain dedicated to minimising risk and best ensuring the health and welfare of our colleagues and students as well as our clients and patients.
