General practice accreditation in Australia: 2022

Method and analysis

Method and analysis

Study design

A quantitative analysis was conducted of the RoGS primary and community health data tables associated with general practice accreditation in Australia.

Data collection

The relevant annual RoGS data from 2010–2022 was examined. The RoGS provides information on the equity, effectiveness and efficiency of government services in Australia, including primary and community health and general practice accreditation. The RoGS and its accompanying data are in the public domain and freely available.

The RoGS provides national and state/territory data on:

  • the number of general practices registered for accreditation
  • the number of general practices and the proportion of accredited practices for 2010, 2011,  2018 and 2019 (see Table 1)
  • the number of practices accredited by one of two accreditation agencies (AGPAL and QPA) (see Table 2).6

Data analysis

The RoGS provides its primary and community health data tables in Microsoft Excel file format. The data provided within this update have been collated and analysed using this program.

The number of general practices accredited by the two agencies included within the RoGS allows an analysis of the change in market share between these two agencies since 2010.

The RoGS data do not include the total number of general practices and proportion of those that were accredited in 2022.

For an analysis of RoGS data on the number of general practices and the proportion of accredited practices over the 10-year period from 2010–2019, refer to General practice accreditation in Australia: Data from 2010–2021.
