Survey Visits Can Resume Today

Onsite assessments for accreditation can resume for general practices from today! The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) advised that these will only occur where there is a low risk of COVID-19 transmission. You may have already been given your survey date and be working with your accrediting body, but to clarify some of the questions you might have, the Commission has published responses to some frequently asked questions like:
  • How do I know if my practice is considered low risk?
  • What happens if my practice is not low risk?
  • What happens if the risk level of my practice changes?
