Become an AGPAL Surveyor

Add more spice to your GP life!

Are you a General Practitioner (GP) looking for more diversity in your working week?

Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL) is a leading provider of accreditation and related quality improvement services to general practices in Australia.

AGPAL is currently expanding its GP Surveyor pool by conducting a national intake of GP Surveyors.

AGPAL contracts GP Surveyors to assess the quality of care provided by general practices against the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) Standards. As professional peers,
GP Surveyors have a unique opportunity to promote improvements in general practice while developing their own professional skills and gaining a rare insight into the diverse contexts of general practice nationally.

AGPAL GP Surveyors undertake three main roles in the accreditation survey process:
1.Reviewing the practice’s self-assessment prior to the survey visit
2. Assessing the practice against the Standards, which is undertaken during on-site survey visits which are typically 4 hours in length
3. Preparing and submitting a survey report on compliance and identified opportunities for improvement with in the practice

Beyond the important task of assessing practices against the Standards, Surveyors also have the opportunity to travel, network with professional peers, coach and mentor, support quality improvement and give back to the profession.

Survey activities can take Surveyors to anywhere in Australia from the very top of
Cape York all the way to central Perth. The amount of activity a Surveyor undertakes is only limited only by their availability.
