Short Notice Assessments

In January 2023, the Commission announced the mandated requirement for short-notice accreditation assessments for licensed hospitals and day procedure services as part of the NSQHS Standards assessment process. For health services which fall outside of the Commission’s licensing requirements, mandated short-notice assessments do not currently apply, unless the governing regulator or funding body specifies this as a requirement.

These short notice assessments commenced on 1 July 2023, replacing the old announced and voluntary checks for healthcare organisations and aims to reflect day-to-day practice, identify gaps and support hospitals and day procedure services to improve safety and quality systems and processes.

The QIP Team is working with the Commission and our clients to support these services to prepare for the transition to short-notice assessments. For personalised assistance or to learn more contact our team.
