Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL) is a leading not-for-profit organisation, established in 1997 by industry members, as a provider for general practice accreditation and quality improvement services within Australia. AGPAL is part of the AGPAL Group of Companies.
Here at AGPAL, we are dedicated to servicing and supporting general practices, Aboriginal medical services, medical deputising services, after hours services and Royal Flying Doctor Services throughout their accreditation and quality improvement journeys.
Accreditation is our core business – let us share that with you.
Vision, Mission and Values
To support our clients and improve the service provision of health, community and human services throughout Australia, now and into the future, AGPAL is committed to the following vision, mission and values:
The AGPAL Group of Companies is committed to supporting reconciliation amongst Indigenous, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous Australian people. In keeping with the spirit of reconciliation, we acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Owners of the lands. We wish to pay respect to their Elders - past, present and emerging - and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within our community.
AGPAL is represented by the left large meeting place in the blue and black while QIP is represented by the right large meeting place in the light and dark blue. The different Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander medical and community services are represented by the coloured meeting circles and the communities they serve are represented by the dots and pattern work in the background. The pathways in-between show AGPAL and QIP supporting the health and community service providers to constantly improve their service delivery to care and support for members of the Australian community.
Reinvesting to benefit our clients
To ensure practices are appropriately supported with tools and resources, and customer service expectations are exceeded, AGPAL remains a not-for-profit organisation. Being a not-for-profit allows us to continuously re-invest back into the business to improve our general practice accreditation and related service offerings.
This re-investment means greater benefits for practices at more competitive rates, allowing the delivery of improved outcomes and benefits, as well as greater industry involvement and support.
A combination of over 21 years history, expertise, experience and knowledge, cultivated since accrediting our first group of general practices in 1997.
Australia’s preferred accreditation provider for the majority of general practices accredited in Australia.
Integrated technology to create a seamless accreditation process featuring everything you need at your fingertips.
Since our establishment in 1997, AGPAL has remained governed by an industry Board of Directors and 10 member organisations.
This governance structure allows AGPAL to work in partnership with each of our member organisations and to be advised by industry members through our Board of Directors – delivering more value, expertise, insights and benefits to practices across Australia.

AGPAL is part of the AGPAL Group of Companies, Australia’s most comprehensive accreditation and quality support organisations.
