RACGP Standards for after-hours services

The draft RACGP Standards for after-hours services (Standards for after-hours services) have been released for consultation. To ensure the Standards for after-hours services are meaningful to the profession and other stakeholders, we invite interested individuals and organisations to review the draft and provide feedback. There will be further revisions to successive drafts of the Standards for after-hours services based on feedback received.


To be accredited against the Standards for after-hours services, a service must first meet the RACGP’s definition of an after-hours service for the purposes of accreditation. Similar to the requirements for general practices, the after-hours services would then be required to meet the following modules:

  • Core
  • Quality Improvement
  • After-Hours Services.


Given that the Core and Quality Improvement modules apply to a variety of general practice settings (including after hours), they have been included for context. Questions have been included in the draft Standards for after-hours stakeholders to consider. The RACGP Patient Feedback Guide and the Resource Guide are also available for reference (see link below).

Please submit your feedback to by 29 September 2017. All stakeholder feedback will be published, unless you state otherwise.
