The Royal Australian College of General Practice has recently published an updated version of The Standards for General Practices to a 5th Edition which they describe as “one of the pillars of safety and quality in the Australian healthcare system”.
They go on to state that “achieving independent accreditation against the Standards demonstrates that a general practice is serious about providing high quality, safe and effective care to standards of excellence determined by the general practice profession”.
In 2010, 2013 and again in 2016, Riverstone Family Medical Practice was independently assessed by General Practice Accreditation Plus against the RACGP Standards. It was found to be compliant at the highest level with every criterion of the Standards. We are proud to receive this feedback and determined to continue to endeavour to operate at the highest level in future.
