Join us

Become a member of the AAA, help us to be the voice of AA’s and shape our profession.

The Association’s main goal has always been driving the profession towards statutory regulation. We feel this is in the interests of AA’s, our supervisors and importantly, patient safety.

The Association has been present in all stakeholder meetings around regulation, prescribing, AA expansion and faculty development. The ongoing work is extensive and we strive to represent our membership.

Promoting the work of AA’s across all 4 nations is key to establishing an effective and respected workforce supporting the Aneasthesia Team.

Members of the Association also benefit from;

  • Discounted fees for our annual conference. A fantastic opportunity to meet your colleagues from across the UK, with a strong AA relevant educational core.

  • Access to the member’s on-line forum. This is a lively forum which we use to share information, ask for advice and help, air our concerns, debate current issues, and generally keep in touch with one another. (It is by turns, reassuring, alarming, infuriating or hilarious, but rarely boring!)

  • The opportunity to attend the Annual General Meeting of the AAA, have your say, stand for Board membership, vote in Board elections.

  • Ability to attend listening events with representatives from the Board. Get updates via live online events. Have your say and ask questions.

  • Vote on the location of future AAA annual conferences
  • Have your views represented by elected AAA Board members at a national level


to Association of Anaesthesia Associates

The Royal College of Anaesthetists currently hold a voluntary register of qualified AAs. The register is a pre-requisite for a GMC statutory register, the Royal College of Anaesthetists has written to all NHS Trusts advising them to employ only registered AAs.

The GMC encourage all AAs to join the voluntary register, as it is expected those on the voluntary register may be ‘grandfathered’ across to the statutory register.
