Carson Suite achieves Accreditation

Congratulations to our Carson Suite team!

Accreditation  evaluates the quality and safety of the practice environment, systems and processes against the quality standards set by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP). Accreditation of General Practices is a voluntary process in Australia and we were assessed by AGPAL, which is an independent, not-for-profit organisation, governed by a board that includes GPs, practice managers and consumer representatives.

To earn accreditation, we undertook an extensive on-site review by a team of AGPAL GP Surveyors and Co-surveyors.  To be awarded accreditation we had to demonstrate how we met all the standards and criteria set by the RACGP.

Achieving accreditation covers:

  • The safe and lawful use of practice equipment;
  • Accessibility and availability of medical care including after-hours and emergency care;
  • Staff training;
  • Information technology and information security;
  • The security and availability of your records and information.
