Mr Hiroshi Nishikawa, a founding director of The Westbourne Centre and consultant plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgeon, is the new head of the organisation’s Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) and Clinical Effectiveness Committee (CEC).
The Westbourne Centre, a medical clinic in the centre of Birmingham, provides consultant-led care to over 1,000 patients each year in the areas of cosmetic surgery, dentistry, orthopaedics, ENT, Ophthalmology and more. The majority of patients self-pay, although a percentage use insurance or the NHS to cover the cost of treatments.
Both committees are part of the coordinated approach The Westbourne Centre takes to the delivery of care for patients, adherence to professional standards, and legislative requirements.
“Mr Nishikawa was a natural selection to head-up the MAC and CEC because of his extensive experience as a consultant surgeon, his on-going commitment to training and mentoring young surgeons, and unwavering belief in the safety of patients whilst delivering high-quality healthcare” notes Sarah Rush, general manager of The Westbourne Centre. “We are pleased to have his guidance and support”.
“The Westbourne Centre is dear to my heart” notes Mr Nishikawa. “As a member of the founding team, I am dedicated to ensuring the continued success of procedures using local anaesthetic with or without sedation, the high standard of cleanliness and infection control, and the overall well-being of our patients”.
The Clinical Effectiveness Committee (CEC) and Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) meet on a quarterly basis to review the clinical and safety performance of The Westbourne Centre.
