At QPA, we value general practice.  We are GPs.

“We understand how hard it is to be a GP. One minute you can be seeing a child with a sore throat, the next managing a patient with complex chronic disease.

As GPs, we understand general practice isn’t just about our patient’s problems but about their stories, where and how they live. We make a difference to people’s lives in small or large steps every day.”

“At QPA, we don’t just accredit general practices: we understand them.”

Dr Paul Mara

Managing Director


QPA exists to improve the healthcare of people, their families and communities. Accreditation builds confidence in the quality of general practice.

QPA is the only independent accreditation provider who specialises in General Practice – we focus on you, leaving you to focus on what’s important: your patients.

QPA delivers accreditation in a way which engages general practices in the quality cycle, continually striving for better.

Every practice is assigned a Quality Accreditation Manager, who will support and guide you through every step of the accreditation process.
