Established in February 2012, SWARM is an anaesthetic trainee-led audit and research collaborative based in Peninsula Deanery in the South West of England.

It aims are:

1. To establish a regional network of anaesthetic trainees who conduct multi-centre research and audit with a high potential for making an impact.
2. To allow trainees to continue their involvement in research and audit projects as they migrate around the deanery.
3. To provide training in research for the educational benefit of SWARM members.
4. To attract national funding for research and audit work.

To date SWARM have recruited ~1,878 patients to NIHR Portfolio Studies
