Practice accreditation

The National General Practice Accreditation (NGPA) Scheme supports the consistent assessment of Australian general practices against the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners’ (RACGP) Standards for General Practices.

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Healthcare administers the NGPA Scheme.

How can we help?

We provide free PEN CAT licences to practices in our region, and support practices to use the tool to analyse and use practice data for quality improvement. Group and in-practice training sessions are also available.

If your practice is not accredited or does not have PEN CAT, please phone us on (03) 9347 1188 or email

To support practices to achieve the PIP QI incentive, NWMPHN has developed a PIP Quality Improvement report from each practice’s deidentified data. This report helps practices to see how they are tracking according to the PIP 10 Quality Improvement measures. Our relationship managers email these reports to practices each quarter.
