Practice accreditation

Practices must be accredited, or registered for accreditation, to participate in the PIP.

To participate in the PIP, practices must be assessed by an approved Accrediting agency. For a list of approved accrediting agencies visit the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care website.

Accreditation involves:

  • self-assessment against agreed standards
  • peer review surveys (practice visits) of the practice's organisation and facilities
  • the start of a continuous quality improvement cycle.

The practice is responsible for notifying us when they have been fully accredited.
