Quality Policy

 
Adelaide Eye & Laser Centre (AE&LC), a privately owned Ophthalmic Day Surgery & Consulting practice specialising in Cataract & Refractive procedures opened as a licensed facility in 1999.
 
Its philosophy is to be a leader in its field and aims to set high standards in the delivery of health care, customer service and employee relations.
 
The quest for excellence in eye care is achieved by implementing the latest developments in technology and innovative surgical techniques.
 
The day surgery was designed in accordance with the guidelines established for Excimer laser centres and day surgery units by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, SA Health Commission, Commonwealth Health requirements and Australian Building Standards.
 
Adelaide Eye & Laser Centre successfully gained Accreditation from the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS) in November 1999 and continued to undergo regular reviews by the body to maintain its accredited status until late 2007 when the management of AE&LC made a commitment to undergo ISO 9001:2008 certification.  In 2014 AE&LC met the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (NSQHSS) for Day Hospitals.  All staff are encouraged & supported whilst participating in quality improvement activities to assist in their endeavours in achieving the desired outcomes.
 
AE&LC will set quality objectives and review them annually to ensure they are met. 
 
AE&LC is committed to satisfying any requirements of the ISO 9001:2016 standard and is committed to continual improvement of the quality management system.
