Quality Improvement and Accreditation

 

Quality Improvement and Accreditation is a continuous cycle of using feedback and evidence to make improvements. Providing high quality services is important to us. Everything we do meets or exceeds industry accreditation standards.

 

What does this mean for you?

We are fully accredited with the Quality Improvement Council (QIC) Health and Community Services Standards. To ensure that we continue to meet these standards we are regularly reviewed to ensure that we are delivering a high quality, safe and effective service.

What does this mean for you?

Nexus is a registered charity – Promoting the Registered Charity Tick on Nexus Marketing Materials is a useful way for our organisation to highlight our charitable status, along with our listing on the Charity Register
(acnc.gov.au/charityregister)

The Australian Charities and Not-for- profits Comission (ACNC) has created the new Tick of Charity Registration (Registered Charity Tick) to help charities show the public that they’re registered with the ACNC.

What does this mean for you?

Being accredited means that our General Practice is committed to:

  • Achieving the nationally recognised Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) Standards for General Practices that focus on providing you with high quality health care in a safe environment,
  • Engaging all of our staff to review our practice’s systems and processes,
  • Allowing a team of independent surveyors to assess how our practice operates.

General Practice accreditation is a voluntary process – which means not all practices undergo an independent on-site assessment on a regular basis.

Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL) is a not-for-profit independent provider of general practice accreditation in Australia.
