Ceremonies & Lectures
Plenary Session: Sir Robert Macintosh Lecture
Lessons from the frontline
Surgeon Captain Kate Prior (London, United Kingdom)
King’s College Hospital London
Surgeon Captain Kate Prior is a consultant anaesthetist in the Royal Navy and at King’s College Hospital in London where she does anaesthesia and major trauma. She has recently finished a three year term as the Military Clinical Director for the Joint Hospital Group South East and oversees military healthcare professionals across London and the south-east.
In recent years, her operational military role has taken her to war in Afghanistan and Iraq, Sierra Leone during the Ebola crisis, working for the United Nations in South Sudan and, most recently, to sea with the aircraft carrier HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH. Having been a “reluctant intensivist” during the height of the COVID pandemic, she is now very happily giving anaesthetics again.
As one of only twenty female Captains in the Royal Navy, Kate exemplifies what a woman can achieve in the workplace, particularly in the male-dominated world of the military. Kate was the recipient of the Medical Women’s Federation Centenary Award for an Established Doctor.
Outside of the hospital walls, she provides pre-hospital care for the military, for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and sporting events as diverse as World Triathlon races, the Bramham International Horse Trials and the London Marathon.
Outside of work, she is a keen theatre-goer, tries not to get killed cycling to work and indulges in holidays, shoes and handbags.

Conflict of Interest Policy
Any person who chairs or speaks in the formal programme of the Euroanaesthesia Congress is required to declare the existence of any relationships or arrangements, direct or indirect that could be reasonably considered to affect the presentation, over the last 3 years. This includes, but is not limited to, factors such as financial relationships, advisory positions, receipt of honoraria, payments or consultation fees, expenses, grants, stock shareholder and membership of other organisations. The range and degree of such links are difficult to define and the ESAIC encourages declaration of any facts that could be considered relevant, including non-specific grants to departments or research funds.
Faculty members are required to make a declaration. If a declaration is not received by the published deadline, the ESAIC
reserves the right to withdraw the official invitation. Any faculty member who declares a competing interest will be indicated in the Final Programme with an asterisk (*) and the statement will be made available to the delegates in the congress platform.
A record will be kept of submitted statements and this will be available for inspection by members of the Scientific Committee, the National Organising Committee and accrediting bodies.
In sessions organised within the Scientific Programme of Euroanaesthesia by other bodies and societies, the same conditions will apply.
