As you will recall, assessment against the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards was delayed this year to allow us to maintain focus on our COVID-19 response.
We have now been informed that Monash Health will undergo a National Standards accreditation assessment from Monday 7 June to Friday 11 June, 2021.
Work has continued throughout the year to ensure we are accreditation-ready as part of our business-as-usual approach to good governance, safe patient care and high-quality outcomes for our patients, families and carers.
You will have conducted activities such as mandatory training, performance appraisals and good governance as part of your daily work.
Over the coming months, we will be supporting you to continue these processes and provide tips and updates on what you can do to ensure you feel confident and comfortable with the process occurring in June next year.
For now - mark the date in your diaries and stay tuned for the next steps.
