Anna-Maria Rollin MBE:

Maria has worked in the NHS throughout her professional career and spent 34 years as a consultant anaesthetist at Epsom General Hospital. She was a Member of Council of the Royal College of Anaesthetists, and ultimately Senior Vice-President. Thereafter, she held the post of Clinical Quality Adviser to the College. She has always had an interest in patient information and patient safety, and currently works as a GMC Associate. Most of her publications have been concerned with standard setting, quality assurance and safety and she is the author/ co-author of several national guidelines.

Dr Michael Barnett: Michael was appointed a consultant at Guy’s Hospital in 1974 and retired in 2007 where he had roles in the development of the adult and the paediatric intensive care units. Michael had a special interest in paediatric anaesthesia, especially for renal transplantation and paediatric cardiology. He was Director of the Anaesthetic Department at Guy’s and St Thomas’ for four years.

Dr Archie Naughton:

Archie is a former naval officer, a commando helicopter pilot in the Fleet Air Arm. His career in the Royal Navy was cut short by a life-changing injury, but after a lengthy recovery period, he was able to resume a civilian aviation career.

Since retirement he has been actively involved in the health sector. He was a member of the Patients Liaison Group at the Royal College of Anaesthetists and a charity trustee at the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland.
