General Practice Accreditation

Home > Programs and National Schemes > General Practice Accreditation

Accreditation is the assessment of a general practice against the requirements outlined in the Standards of General Practice written and published by the Royal Australian College of General Practice (RACGP) 5th Edition Standards The Standards of General Practice are considered the benchmark for Australian practices.

General practices undertaking accreditation against the Standards must do so via an independent accreditation agency.

WVPHN practice facilitation team can support general practices in the WVPHN region to undertake accreditation, however, highly recommend general practices choose an accreditation agency that will be able to talk them through the process and explain what is required.

General practices should allow 12-18 months for the process of accreditation; however, it is an ongoing commitment without a start and finish date.
