Barwon Anaesthetic Service, known locally as BAS, has provided anaesthetic services to the Geelong and surrounding community since 1980.

The group was founded by Drs Paul Hanson and Kenneth Carlile and has grown steadily since. We now have 14 anaesthetists and six office staff. Our first office was located in Ryrie Street, Geelong, but with continued expansion BAS moved to McKillop Street and then to our current office at St John of God Hospital in 2000. Although working from a single office all BAS anaesthetists are independent medical practitioners.

Our aim is to provide the highest quality anaesthesia care to patients in the Geelong region.
