What does AGPAL Accreditation mean to you as a patient?
Local practice receives the mark of quality as an accredited practice
Raby increased its community health credentials recently when it was successfully accredited against the RACGP 5th Edition Standard. This demonstrates our commitment to quality and safety in general practice.
Raby Medical Centre received this important recognition from Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL) - a not-for-profit provider of general practice accreditation services within Australia.
“Achieving accreditation is a major achievement for any practice and a clear demonstration that Raby Medical Centre is striving to improve their level of care to both patients and the community”
- AGPAL Chair, Dr Richard Choong
To achieve accreditation, the team worked over a 12-month period to implement the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) Standards for general practices. The RACGP Standards provide a recognised national benchmark for general practices and services, and a template for quality care and risk management.
The RACGP Standard covers a number important areas we demonstrated capability. I wanted to share some of the key ones that would positively affect you as a patient
Clinical processes that focus on patient outcomes
Safety of the premises
Cold chain management, assuring effectiveness of vaccines
Patient privacy and health data security
And above all, a culture of continuous improvement
