The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) provides the Standards for General Practice. General practices can obtain accreditation from an independent accreditation agency. The RACGP Standards are used by these agencies to provide the practice with accreditation.
If you would like to gain accreditation for your practice the first step is to choose an accreditation agency. We have included the details of these agencies below. The agency you choose will be able to support and talk you through the process. The process normally takes 12-18 months. Accreditation is a requirement to be eligible for the Australian Government Practice Incentives Program (PIP).
Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) may be able to assist by providing support on meeting the RACGP standards. You can also join our mailing lists to get up to date information and talk to other practitioners about the accreditation process.
