Accreditation – A sign of quality
In 2016, BreastScreen WA was awarded two years accreditation with the national breast screening program, BreastScreen Australia.
All BreastScreen Australia services are regularly reviewed to ensure they provide a high quality service. The performance of every BreastScreen Australia Service is measured by assessing how closely it meets a set of nationally agreed standards.
Accreditation is the process that evaluates the overall Service. All Services must participate in the accreditation process to be part of BreastScreen Australia. The accreditation system includes checking that Services meet the standards through site visits, self-assessment and reporting to the national quality committee.
Services are only accredited if they provide an acceptable quality of service.
