The RCGP Practice Accreditation award is a thoroughly tested framework that enables practice teams to improve their organisational quality of care. The straightforward process has been designed to be manageable for practices of all sizes. Forward looking practices will start to see immediate benefits by progressing towards accreditation.
The standards reflect key aspects of primary care, particularly the organisational systems and processes that ensure delivery of safe and quality care, facilitate on-going team development and recognise the contribution to quality improvement that can be made by the whole practice team. Practice Accreditation is a quality standard aimed and tailored specifically for General Practice.
