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 Health 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 Director of Nursing 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.
Membership of St Stephen’s Hospital’s Medical Advisory Committee includes:
Dr Jack O’Donohue – Chair
Dr Nilanjana Suthaharan
Dr Mark Marshall
Dr Surendra Bhutra – Vice Chair
Dr Paul Neeskens
Dr Polbert Diaz
