Advisories and resources for the NGPA Scheme

Resources and advisories have been developed to assist general practices and accrediting agencies adhere to the requirements of the NGPA Scheme.


An Advisory is formal communication issued by the Commission to accrediting agencies and general practices. Advisories provide guidance and direction on assessments under the NGPA Scheme. Advisories will usually be issued when the Commission identifies that additional support is required to assist with the consistent implementation or assessment of a specific action or topic. An advisory may also be issued where the implementation of an action requires a stepwise process with long implementation timeframes.
