Our Medical Advisory Committee's work is fundamental to the provision of safe, high quality health care services at St Andrew's War Memorial Hospital.
As part of UnitingCare and St Andrew’s War Memorial 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 Director of Clinical Services is also included in this committee membership to ensure that an interdisciplinary clinical approach to review is undertaken. The hospital’s Director of Medical Services and General Manager also attend each meeting.
