Theodore Medical receives the mark of quality as an accredited practice
Theodore increased its community health credentials today when Theodore Medical received a national award of accreditation, demonstrating its commitment to quality and safety within its practice.
Theodore Medical received this important recognition from Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL), the leading not-for-profit provider of general practice accreditation services within Australia.
AGPAL Chair, Dr Richard Choong, said accreditation shows the practice makes a significant investment and commitment to quality on a day-to-day basis, across all levels of the practice team.
“Achieving accreditation is a major achievement for any practice and a clear demonstration that Theodore Medical is striving to improve their level of care to both patients and the community,” he said.
“Practices seek accreditation because they want to do their best and view this as another step towards excellence in patient care.”
To achieve accreditation, a practice team works over a 12 month period to implement the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) Standards for general practices, the recognised national standard for general practices, that provides a template for quality care and risk management.
