Update from QPA

QPA has advised the following1:
  • Pending advice from the Commission, QPA will provide at least one month’s notice for any postponement of practice visits.
  • Consistent with this policy, all practice visits for April and May 2020 will be postponed. We will make a decision after consultation with the Commission on a postponement of June visits on 30 April and continue to provide advice at the end of each month on a rolling basis.
  • Any emergency response plan needs to have a policy, procedure and process to ensure orderly and timely return to normal operations.
  • QPA will continue to plan and prepare for booked visits through to the end of the year, to allow for this orderly return to normal operations. Practices that have their accreditation visits postponed will be offered tentative visits in due course.
