Welcome to the Launceston Group of Specialist Anaesthetists (LGSA).  

We are a group of specialist anaesthetists based locally in Launceston, providing services to patients in Northern Tasmania since 1986.  Our private practice mainly services Calvary St Vincent’s Hospital, Calvary St Luke’s Hospital, The Eye Hospital, and most of our anaesthetists also work as staff specialists at Launceston General Hospital. Hence you can be assured that when you choose an LGSA anaesthetist, he/she will understand your needs.

Our anaesthetists are Fellows of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists and operate to the highest standards of specialist practice set out by the College.
