General practice accreditation in Australia is a voluntary process, meaning your practice does not have to be accredited. A practice without accreditation does not have to demonstrate how its operations or staff provide you with quality care. A practice without accreditation can operate, well…how it likes.
A practice with accreditation, however, has been assessed as meeting standards that define best practice in patient care by a team of independent, experienced, general practice professionals. An accredited practice’s staff have participated in interviews, demonstrating their knowledge and commitment to quality, and to your care. The facilities of an accredited practice have been examined so that you, the patient, can rest assured that your practice has all the equipment and systems it needs to provide you with safe, optimal care.
