Who We Are

The NZSA is the voice for New Zealand anaesthetists, especially on issues unique to New Zealand. We support and champion the professional interests and wellbeing of anaesthetists, and the optimal care of their patients. We take the lead independently and collaboratively on issues that affect New Zealand anaesthesia.

  • Advocacy: Representing member interests across economic, professional, legal, welfare and workforce issues.
  • Community: Supporting anaesthesia networks, including sub-specialty networks of obstetrics, paediatrics and Airway Leads, with representatives from across NZ sharing information to enhance patient care.
  • Education: Facilitating, supporting and promoting continuing education, and research and innovation to advance anaesthesia.

The Society has strong global connections and is a member of the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists. We are at the forefront of New Zealand anaesthesia aid in the Pacific through our Overseas Aid Sub-Committee. The Committee has close links with Pacific Island colleagues, and Society members work to improve anaesthesia and resuscitation equipment in the region.
