At our day surgeries, you will have the benefit of our friendly, highly experienced administrative and specialist theatre teams – led by an on-site Director of Nursing – who ensure patient comfort and safety as well as efficient turnaround times.
Our staff will always make you feel welcome, which even extends to speaking a range of languages other than English, including Mandarin, Cantonese, Malaysian, Filipino, Vietnamese, Korean and Italian (depending on the facility).
Our theatre rosters offer surgeons the convenience of flexible session frequency, and you will generally be able to work with the same theatre staff on every list – we strive to foster strong, consistent working relationships at our facilities.
You can also expect convenience at our day surgeries. Our facilities are well located, and most have ample parking for surgeons and patients. We provide on-site change-room facilities, including lockers, as well as theatre scrub garments available in a range of sizes. We also offer tea/coffee facilities and light refreshments (at a minimum).
We warmly invite surgeons to take a tour, meet our dedicated staff and learn about our flexible theatre-session packages.
For more information about how we can work with you to complement your surgical services, contact Claire Fogarty or download our corporate prospectus.
We’re always happy to hear from qualified and experienced administrative and clinical support personnel.

In the first instance, email us at [email protected] for more information. You will then be directed to the relevant Director of Nursing to discuss available theatre sessions.
While we offer existing facilities for a wide range of specialties, we are also happy to consider complementary specialties in our theatres. Email us at [email protected] to discuss your needs.
At most of our day surgeries, there is car parking, tea/coffee amenities and a small range of refreshments/snacks available for all staff. We also provide change rooms with lockers.
Your individual day surgery will be responsible for informing your patient of any theatre fee out-of-pocket expenses they may incur as a result of their health fund check or if they are uninsured. All theatre fees are payable on the day of admission. An information pack is provided to the patient which will outline fees payable.
If you have a preferred anaesthetist, you are generally welcome to have them rostered to your theatre sessions. The anaesthetist will need to be credentialled prior to working with us. If you do not have a preference for an anaesthetist, the Director of Nursing will assist you and make arrangements for a suitable anaesthetist to be allocated to your regular sessions.
Your day surgery will provide you with an information pack that you can give to your patients. You will need to provide the patient with their fasting instructions and diabetic or anticoagulant medication requirements.
It is ideal for you to bring any AScans or patient notes you may wish to refer to during the theatre session.
