The Health Service at Nathan and Gold Coast campuses received the award of accreditation, through the Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL), demonstrating ongoing commitment to the quality and safety of their practice.
AGPAL Chair Dr Peter Choong stated that ‘The practice received the top honour from Australia’s most respected accreditation body (AGPAL).’ Dr Choong stated that ‘the accreditation award shows that the practice makes a significant investment in quality on a day to day basis from the top down.’
Achieving accreditation is a voluntary process and covers features such as:
• the safe and lawful use of practice equipment;
• accessibility and availability of medical care including after-hours care and emergency care;
• information technology and information security;
• the security and availability of your records and information.
The Health Service first received this Award in 2008.
