Healthcare services wishing to become accredited to the Primary and Community Healthcare Standards may seek provisional accreditation to the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards in certain circumstances.
The Commission is developing the National Safety and Quality Primary and Community Healthcare Standards Guide for Healthcare Services (the Guide) to provide support for healthcare services implementing the Primary and Community Healthcare Standards. It includes practical guidance and examples of evidence that can be used to implement the actions in a way that is appropriate to the healthcare service.
Consultation open - Have your say
The Commission is seeking your feedback on the draft content for the Guide.
You are invited to provide feedback on any, or all, of the content relating to individual actions in the Primary and Community Healthcare Standards.
This tool has been developed to specifically support services intending to transition from implementation of the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards 2nd edition to implementation of the Primary and Community Healthcare Standards. It should be used together with the relevant NSQHS Standards guide and the Accreditation Workbook, available on the Commission’s website.
