Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News -

Glenorie in­creased its com­mu­nity health cre­den­tials when Glenorie Dis­trict Med­i­cal Cen­tre re­ceived a na­tional award of ac­cred­i­ta­tion, demon­strat­ing its com­mit­ment to qual­ity and safety within its prac­tice.

Glenorie Dis­trict Med­i­cal Cen­tre re­ceived this im­por­tant recog­ni­tion from Aus­tralian Gen­eral Prac­tice Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Lim­ited (AGPAL). Ac­cred­i­ta­tion shows the prac­tice makes a sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment and com­mit­ment to qual­ity on a day-to-day ba­sis, across all lev­els of the prac­tice team. Achiev­ing ac­cred­i­ta­tion is a ma­jor achieve­ment and a clear demon­stra­tion that Glenorie Dis­trict Med­i­cal Cen­tre is striv­ing to im­prove their level of care to both pa­tients and the com­mu­nity.

Ar­eas of fo­cus dur­ing an on­site as­sess­ment for ac­cred­i­ta­tion in­clude: en­sur­ing vac­cines are within their use-by-date and stored at the cor­rect tem­per­a­tures, that the prac­tice equip­ment is clean and ster­ile, prac­tice staff are up-to-date with their train­ing, and the prac­tice has emer­gency care avail­able. Ev­ery­one at the prac­tice plays a valu­able role in work­ing to meet the RACGP Stan­dards. It gives staff a real sense of pride to work in an ac­cred­ited prac­tice. We want com­mu­nity mem­bers, na­tion­wide to know that their well­be­ing is our pri­or­ity. By choos­ing to at­tend an ac­cred­ited prac­tice, pa­tients know they will get qual­ity and safe care that meets the RACGP Stan­dards.

Glenorie Dis­trict Med­i­cal Cen­tre is lo­cated at 920b Old North­ern Rd, Glenorie and of­fers a range of ser­vices in­clud­ing Pathol­ogy, Phys­io­ther­apy, Po­di­a­try and Psy­chol­ogy. Con­tact: 96521663
