Healthcare Accreditation - The George Centre

The George Centre is accredited!

The George Centre is proud to announce we have received accreditation.

Accreditation is public recognition by a health care accreditation body of the achievement of accreditation standards by a health care organisation, demonstrated through an independent external peer assessment of that organisation’s level of performance in relation to the standards and involves a detailed audit of all areas of the hospital; its policies and systems.

It is a valuable consultative process designed around quality improvement guidance to help organisations work towards, and reach, relevant standards. Part of the process includes the accreditors following a patient journey from admission through to discharge.

The accreditors attended the hospital on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th July, and The George Centre was supported in achieving accreditation by our Visiting Medical Officers (VMOs) who performed procedures in our theatre suite and made themselves available to answer the accreditors questions. Our sincere thanks to our doctors who assisted as follows:

Dr Earl Abraham, Endocrine and General Surgeon and Chairman of our Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) who made himself available to answer questions from the accreditation team

Dr Beshoy Farah, Gastroenterologist who performed  two endoscopy lists in our endoscopy suite

Dr Daniel Fletcher, Anaesthetist

Dr Kayvan Haghighi, Urologist who performed the first surgical list in our operating theatres

Dr Kurt Kaiser, Anaesthetist

Dr Andrew Ong, Endocrine and General Surgeon who performed an endoscopy list

Dr Nasreen Shammas, Gynaecologist who performed a surgical list

The feedback from our specialists was very welcome, including the following quote from Dr Kayvan Haghighi.

“I was very impressed with my first surgical list at The George Centre. The facility’s operating suite and the care provided to my patient was of the highest quality.”

Achieving accreditation means we are now able to negotiate with the health funds to partner with us. This is the next area of focus for The George Centre’s management team, and we will post updates here on our blog post, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
