Primary and Community Healthcare Standards now available

ACSQHC has released the National Safety and Quality Primary and Community Healthcare Standards, which describe the processes and structures in healthcare services that help keep people safe.

The standards provide a framework that applies to a broad range of healthcare services, including dental practices, allied health services (optometry, audiology, podiatry and physiotherapy), Chinese medicine clinics, community health services and skin clinics.

Access the new standards and supporting resources on the ACSQHC website.

From mid-2022, primary and community healthcare services will be able to be independently assessed and become accredited to the new standards. For more information, contact or visit their website.
