Accreditation

 

Blackbutt Medical Centre (previously Timbertown Medical Centre) has been Accredited since 2006.

 

What is Accreditation?

 

The College of General Practice (RACGP) is responsible for writing the Standards for General Practices in Australia.  The RACGP Standards are one of the pillars of safety and quality in the Australian Healthcare system. 

 

The Standards are designed to keep Australian General Practice at the forefront of safe, high quality primary healthcare delivery in Australia.

 

The RACGP Standards for General Practices are subject to a rigorous accreditation process through the International Society for Quality in Healthcare.

 

What is quality? 

 

Quality service provision in the health care setting is maintained by measuring the degree to which a practice meets the requirements of set performance standards.  These standards encourage General Practices to monitor and continually improve the services the practice provides, including education, practice management, the rights and needs of patients and the physical facilities of the practice. This practice was last accredited to the 4th Edition of the RACGP Standards for General Practices. Visit these Standards at RACGP.
