Consultation open on the Review of the general practice accreditation arrangements

By mpconsulting

mpconsulting has been engaged by the Department of Health (the Department) to undertake an independent review of the general practice accreditation arrangements under the National General Practice Accreditation Scheme (NGPA Scheme).

As part of this review, we are seeking input from a range of stakeholders including general practitioners, practice owners and managers, accrediting agencies, peak bodies and patients. To do this, we have released a Consultation Paper and online survey to seek feedback on:

-the extent to which the NGPA Scheme supports quality, safety and continuous improvement in general practice

-the strengths and limitations of the NGPA Scheme, including the barriers and incentives to participation by general practices and challenges for accrediting agencies

-areas for improvement.

The online survey is open for four weeks, from 11 August 2021 to midnight 8 September 2021. You can provide feedback through the Department’s Consultation Hub.

mpconsulting will also be holding targeted stakeholder forums during this period. Further information about the forums can be found in the Consultation Paper.

If you have any questions about the Review or how you can be involved, please contact the review team via the dedicated email address: ngpasreview@mpconsulting.com.au.

If you or anyone you know is interested in contributing to this review, we encourage you to share the link, download the consultation paper, complete the online survey and/or upload a written submission.

Thank you for your interest!
