All Australian general practices, after hours services, medical deputising services and Aboriginal health services must meet the RACGP Standards for general practices to achieve accreditation.
There are also companion guides and associated resources that provide additional guidelines and information for practices undertaking, or considering, accreditation and quality assurance activities.
