Accreditation opened up to more practices but telehealth-only clinics still banned

The RACGP says practices for specific patient groups can now seek accreditation.

Mobile clinics and other non-traditional practices now have a chance to access the $500 million Practice Incentive Program funding pot under the RACGP’s expanded definition of a GP practice.

But telehealth-only practices remain banned on the basis they do not offer adequately comprehensive care becauses in-person examinations are not possible.
