CEA Project

The Carotid endarterectomy project is a trainee led national audit examining peri-operative blood pressure monitoring and management in patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy. Our goal is to understand national attitudes and practises in blood pressure control in the peri-operative period for CEA patients.

This year, Paul Bramley kindly presented the data at the joint meeting of the Yorkshire Society of Anaesthetists and the Manchester Medical Society on 14th of May on behalf of the CEA group and Alex Bell. We are now working on getting it published.

We want to thank everyone who has been involved so far, the large engagement is what will help us make a large impact.


The Yorkshire Cancer Research Bowel Cancer Improvement Programme (YCRBCIP) is a Pan-Yorkshire baseline audit of peri-operative care for bowel cancer patients. It aims to understand the service provision available in the 14 hospital Trusts in the YCRBCIP for these patients and to collect anonymised patient level data on their peri-operative management from an anaesthetic and surgical perspective.

AARMY helped recruit sites and trainees in the majority of east and west Yorkshire hospitals and helped implement the multi-centre project. With data collection now complete, we eagerly await the results.

New Projects

We are now looking for new projects and are happy to help take projects across the whole of Yorkshire. Previous projects have been published nationally, so this is a great opportunity for your CV. If you would like us to consider your idea for an audit or research project to run at a regional level, please get in touch.

Submit a Project Proposal

Along this line, we encourage you all to join our mailing list and keep your details updated to so that we can secure trainee leads in each hospital so run upcoming projects smoothly.

Sign up to our mailing list

Additionally, we also keen to expand our committee with a number of our members expecting to CCT soon. If you’d like to know more about what it involves to be an AARMY committee member and would like to join us, please drop us an email.
