The Yorkshire Society of Anaesthetists, Its Postwar Birth and Development
Dinnick described the first Society of Anaesthetists, founded in 1893 “… to encourage the study of anaesthetics, and to promote and encourage friendly relations among its members … by … debates, discussions … and short papers” . He identified anaesthetic mortality, and, because specialist anaesthetists were few, the anaesthetic education of medical students as the important contemporary issues. That Society became the Anaesthetics Section of the Royal Society of Medicine, in London. It begat the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland, which begat the Faculty of Anaesthetists in the Royal College of Surgeons in 1948.
