Our Medical Advisory Committee's work is fundamental to the provision of safe, high quality health care services at St Stephen's Hospital.
As part of UnitingCare and St Stephen’s Hospital’s Clinical Governance Framework, doctors across all major specialty groups formally meet on a quarterly basis to review the clinical outcomes of the Hospital.
This committee critically analyses clinical results, benchmarks against other health care organisations, reviews clinical practice and advises the hospital with respect to improving patient outcomes.
The Assistant Director of Nursing is also included in this committee membership to ensure that an interdisciplinary clinical approach to review is undertaken. The Hospital’s General Manager also attends each meeting.
Membership of St Stephen’s Hospital’s Medical Advisory Committee includes:
Dr. Polbert Diaz – Chair
Dr. Surendra Bhutra
Dr. Harendra Wijeskera
Dr. Simon Elix
Dr. Regina Wulf
Dr. Nilinjana Suthaharan
Dr. Paul du Toit
