Date published 29/06/2016

An updated health planning unit, HPU270 Day Surgery/ Procedure Unit (Revision 6) has been uploaded and outlines the specific requirements for the planning and design of surgical and procedural services . This document is a revision of the HPU developed for NSW Health and issued for Australasian use in 2006. Its development has been informed by an extensive consultation process with clinicians.

Major changes include:

  • A major restructure of the document across all sections
  • An update of internal functional zones which is now reflected in the functional relationships diagram and schedule of accommodation
  • An updated SoA which includes changes in bed room sizes to support 'care by parent' models
  • An updated Functional Relationship Diagram.

A thank you is extended to all those who have contributed to the review of this document.
