We are pleased to announce that after 12 months of rigorous assessment, Beach Street Family Practice has once again been awarded an AGPAL accreditation, a testament to the practice’s continued commitment and dedication to exceptional patient care. 


Driven to continually monitor and review our operations, this achievement is Beach Street’s fifth Practice Accreditation. 


What does the AGPAL accreditation mean for Beach Street Family Practice? 


This significant business milestone comes from the Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL) – the leading not-for-profit provider of general practice accreditation services within Australia.  


Recognition from this peak body shows that Beach Street Family Practice makes a significant investment and commitment to quality every day across all levels of our practice team. 


The accreditation is voluntary and is simply about exemplifying to patients and the broader community how our dedication to their care and experience makes us a leading family general practice. 


Who can apply for it? 

The AGPAL accreditation program is for general practices across the primary healthcare sector and is voluntary. Assessments run every three years to ensure practices are continuously improving and upholding an exceptional standard. 


What is the process to receive such an award? 


Every member of the Beach Street Family Practice team was involved in the accreditation process. To earn accreditation, the practice must go through a grueling 12-month assessment process to implement the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) Standards for general practices. 


The accreditation also involves an extensive on-site review by a team of AGPAL assessors  who critique the practice’s environment and processes against the RACGP standards. During this assessment, some of the areas of focus include appropriate management of vaccinations, training and emergency care. 


We are your family medical centre 


The team at Beach Street Family Practice works extremely hard to ensure we are always improving. Patient care and the overall practice experience is everything to us and it’s amazing that our local community can see how hard we work through this accreditation – which we’ve now been awarded 5 times!


We know we have an amazing team and our wonderful patients have confirmed it! According to our 2021 patient experience survey, 98% rated our practice either good (13%), very good (24%) or excellent (61%).
