All public health services and registered community health services submit an annual quality account.

The quality accounts provide the Victorian community with an open and transparent account of each service’s performance and improvement work.

Services should submit their quality account to SCV by 31 October 2019

What’s new?

This year we’ve published two versions of the guidelines – one for public health services, and one for registered community health services.

Some public health services also provide integrated community health services. Check the public health service guidelines for your reporting requirements.

Reporting requirements

Download the 2018-19 guidelines for public health services or for registered community health services for information about what to include in your quality account.

These specify the mandatory quality and safety reporting requirements for:

  • patient experience 
  • infection control
  • maternity services
  • residential aged care
  • clinical mental health services
  • continuity of care.

The guidelines also provide advice on how to make your quality account engaging and accessible to your community.

Background

Victoria introduced the quality account in 2015–16 to:

  • ensure accountability of public health services and standalone community health services
  • promote changes in systems and professional practices
  • promote continuous improvement
  • provide consumers with information.
