Procedure-specific Standards for Day Procedure Centre for Surgery and Anaesthesia & Sedation

The Project Steering Committee (PSC) on Standards for Ambulatory Facilities, formed by the Department of Health and the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine, have developed the Procedure-specific Standards for day procedure centres where surgery and/or anaesthesia and sedation are performed. The Procedure-specific Standards should be read with the Core Standards promulgated by the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine.   The Core Standards and Procedure-specific Standards serve to provide guidance to the operators of the day procedure centres and will be adopted as part of the regulatory standards when the statutory licensing system is implemented.  They are subject to review as and when necessary. 

A set of Guidance Notes on Use of Operating Room for Surgical Procedures in Day Procedure Centres is enclosed with the Standards for reference.
