Community engagement is a huge priority for us at Southbank Day Surgery. We believe that supporting the local community goes beyond excellent patient care, to include contributing to the fundraising efforts of organisations such as Vinnies, the Cancer Council and the RSPCA. We are also proud members of the Reconciliation WA group, which recognises and values the continuity of cultural, educational and spiritual practices of First Peoples.
Southbank Day Surgery is fully licensed by the Western Australian Government and accredited by Global Mark. We are part of a National benchmarking team to assist us in improving patient care. We have a Consumer Representative who assists the Day Surgery with audits and patient information to ensure our patients’ needs are met.
Our patients are the reason we all come to work every day, so I make sure my teams are equipped to ensure they are comfortable, respected, and that their expectations are met and exceeded wherever possible.

A comfortable and safe hospital visit begins with a well-planned pre-admission process. This ensures you feel ready for your operation, and have everything you need for your stay with us.
Each procedure is different. Depending on the instructions your surgeon gives us, we may get in touch with you before your operation to confirm your admission time, and inform you of any out of pocket payments due.Learn more about what to expect and how to prepare for your surgery
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
Acknowledging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is an important aspect of ending exclusion.
Southbank Day Surgery acknowledges and respects the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation, and recognises the culture of the Noongar people and the unique contribution they make to the Southern region and Australia.
Awareness of the importance of different cultures and acceptance of this diversity as a part of modern Australia is central to the Southbank Day Surgery culture. This increased acceptance across all aspects of our society is a critical aspect in helping to create a more united Australia.
The land of the Whadjuk People
Southbank day Surgery is situated in South Perth near the Swan River, this has been home to the Whadjuk Noongar/Bibbulmun people for over 45,000 years. The rivers continue to be sources of spiritual, cultural, economic and familial connection for the Whadjuk people and to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples more broadly around the State. Based on Whadjuk mythology, the Swan River (or Derbal Yerrigan) and Canning River (or Djarlgarra – signifying place of abundance) were created by the Waugal, the ancient creation serpent who made the fresh waterways. An important camping and fishing area was situated between the present day Richardson Park and Mill Point (Gareenup) and this area was referred to as Booryulup or the place of the Booryul.
The South Perth foreshore side of Perth Waters is known by Noongars as Gaboodjoolup or ‘the place of the shore’. Further east is Joorolup or ‘place of the jarrahs’. Noongars would camp in the South Perth area when the beere or banksias were flowering and extract honey from the blossom. A spring which was on the Melville Water side of South Perth was widened by the Noongars at this time of year and blossoms were left to ferment in the water. The fermented drink was then consumed as part of this special occasion.
For a number of years, the city has been working with local Aboriginal people and the community to build relationships, trust and understanding on our journey of reconciliation.
