Cornerstone Programme

The Ngaio Medical Centre adheres to the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners' belief that quality general practice is the provision of the best health care that is consistent with patients' values and preferences, given the available resources. The practice has decided to follow the RNZCGP Cornerstone programme. This is a quality cycle that encourages reflection and action based on best available information. Such methods are applied to various aspects of practitioner and practice activity to assist our team to make improvements in our practice. 

The Cornerstone measures 36 practice indicators that identify the RNZCGP standards. Some are required by legislation (e.g. the development of written policies on how we will implement the Code of Health and Disability Services Consumer Rights 1996, or the collection of health information). Some are considered by the RNZCGP to be 'essential' (e.g. various informed consent practices), and those considered 'desirable' (such as staff having current CPR certificates or reviews of practice cultural processes). One such 'essential' criterion is the documentation of a practice long-term strategic plan and an annual business plan. A 'desirable' criterion is to invite patient input for strategic and annual planning purposes. Do consider this an invitation.
