The Hospice has many of the local GPs credentialed to admit to the hospice. Most take sole care of their patients in the hospice with a few sharing the responsibility with others within their practice or with GP registrars. This means that patients receive a high level on continuity with their medical care and are afforded the opportunity to have care from a medical practitioner with whom they have a long standing relationship.

The Hospice provides an environment where GPs with appropriate qualifications and experience can deliver safe, high quality palliative care services. The credentialing system supports this in a local process for reviewing the credentialing and scope of clinical practice applications for all doctors seeking to provide services within the Hospice. 

The Hospice’s credentialing policy can be found here – Medical Credentialing and Scope of Practice Policy
