What is Accreditation?
Accreditation is when a business meets an industry standard. In terms of primary healthcare within New Zealand, these industry standards are very stringent; and are defined and regulated by organisations such as the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP), ACC, New Zealand Medical Council and many others.

What is Cornerstone practice accreditation?

The RNZCGP sets the core requirements for medical practices – be it a General Practice (GP) clinic or a hospital. The requirements set by the College are equal to or in some cases, greater than the requirements of a number of international bodies. The process of assessment is known as Accreditation and the certificate awarded to the medical practice is known as the Cornerstone Accreditation Certificate.
All ETHC clinics are Cornerstone accredited.
