Local Health Networks

The full facility accreditation process for a health service or Local Health Network can take considerable time from application through to notification of accreditation status. When applying for accreditation, health services should allow sufficient time for required approval processes. Submissions should be returned to the SA MET Unit no later than 60 days prior to the agreed date of the assessment visit. Details on the submission are to be verified by the Executive Director of Medical Services (EDMS) and the Director of Clinical Training (DCT).
