RACGP Standards for after-hours services and medical deputising services

The draft RACGP Standards for after-hours and medical deputising services (the Standards) second consultation phase is now closed. To ensure the Standards are meaningful to the profession and other stakeholders, we invited interested individuals and organisations to review the latest draft and provide feedback.

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

  • Core
  • Quality improvement
  • After-hours and medical deputising services.

The final RACGP Standards for after-hours and medical deputising services (5th edition) are due to be released in August 2018.
