Accreditation and patient safety
When you are considering cosmetic surgery, it’s important for you to know if the operating suite is an accredited quality organisation that uses the skills of a fully qualified anaesthetist.
Why is accreditation important?
By choosing a surgeon who operates from an accredited surgical facility, you can be assured of:
- qualified, trained and experienced support staff
- a fully-qualified anaesthetist
- clean and fully-equipped operating room
- adequate personnel and equipment to respond to emergency situations.
Medical Cosmetic Centre’s accreditation
Melbourne Street Day Surgery is Medical Cosmetic Centre’s on-site operating suite. The suite has been accredited for 18 years with The Australian Council on Health Care Standards and is currently accredited with Global Mark Pty Ltd since April 2017. Global–Mark is one of the leading conformity assessment bodies (CABs) in Australia.
For a facility to receive accreditation, it must adhere to strict standards for staff, sanitation, equipment, and patient care which are set out in the 10 National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards.
As part of accreditation, there is regular monitoring of infection rates. Melbourne Street Day Surgery has had no infections for the past eight years.
Dr Kerry and his staff must allow regular inspections and provide thorough records of policies, procedures and audits to retain accreditation.
Medical Cosmetic Centre’s anaesthetic services
Using a fully-qualified anaesthetist to provide intravenous twilight sedation is part of Medical Cosmetic Centre’s accreditation requirements.
The specialist anaesthetists from Wakefield Anaesthetic Group will provide intravenous sedation if it is needed for your procedure. These anaesthetists have been working with Dr Kerry for over 20 years and fully understand the requirements of your procedure.
We will be happy to answer any questions about our accreditation or your anaesthetic. Please feel free to contact us or to chat to Dr Kerry at your next appointment.

I was very pleased with the results. My procedure was quick and relatively painless. The doctor was very professional and reassuring, and his staff was very pleasant and welcoming. The cost was as expected for a plastic surgeon, I could have gone elsewhere for a lower cost, but chose to pay for expertise and experience.*KimSkin Tag Removal
After making an appointment to have a lipoma removed on my forehead, I was very pleased with Dr Kerry’s professionalism and conductivity. He thoroughly explained the procedure/cause and also instantly diagnosed a skin condition which left previous doctors and derms baffled. Has a great sense of humour too. During the procedure I was very comfortable and relieved in knowing I was in good hands. A week later and my scar is looking minimal healing perfectly. Cannot recommend Dr Kerry enough. Price was arranged over the phone and emailed and quite reasonable. Will be back in the future.*GregLipoma removal
My experience has been very good! All of the staff and of course the doctor are friendly, very approachable and put me at ease right from my first visit. I was very nervous before hand! They explained everything that would happen and were very reassuring and helpful throughout. The aftercare has been wonderful as well.*JulieLiposuction
