Australia : LGH commitment to training accreditation.

Earlier this week, the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) visited the Launceston General Hospital (LGH) and agreed to work with the LGH to develop a plan to restore its level three accreditation from its current level two status.

As part of the plan, the LGH will recruit two endocrinologists and two neurologists to provide support to other specialists and trainees.

Achieving level three training accreditation will boost the range of training opportunities available at the LGH and the Government is working with the Tasmanian Health Service to ensure this happens.

The LGH and the Tasmanian Health Service will continue to work constructively with the RACP to ensure the training criteria is met for the hospital.

Its important to note that training accreditation does not affect the range of services that the LGH provides to the community, or how those services are provided.

Recruiting specialist staff is difficult and regions around the country are having to look for new and innovative ways to attract and retain staff.

We are committed to tackling these challenges so that the LGH can become a regional centre of excellence for training.
