Eva Psatha


Anaesthesia & Analgesia Clinician and Champion of Patient Safety

Eva obtained the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree in 1999. Following this, she spent two years in general veterinary practice in Athens (Greece).

Eva then continued her studies by completing a Master of Science in Veterinary Anaesthesia at the Veterinary University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. The Master degree included clinical work and a research project on using a pain scale for assessing postoperative pain in dogs. This scale, called the Glasgow Composite Measure Pain Scale, is now widely used in veterinary hospitals in the UK to evaluate post-operative pain in dogs.

In 2005, Eva then went on to complete a three-year residency in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia at the Royal Veterinary College in London. During this time, she gained her RCVS Certificate in Veterinary Anaesthesia.

Since finishing her residency, Eva has worked in various referral centres in the UK. She has also held a one-year Lecturer position (maternity leave cover) at the School of Veterinary Science, University of Liverpool.

Eva is particularly interested in pain management and in anaesthesia for brain and heart surgery.

Eva shares her home with a rescue Dobermann named Hudson, who loves every person he meets!
