The College’s Quality framework is made up of two programmes – Foundation and Cornerstone. Foundation is the prerequisite onto the Cornerstone programme which shows a practice’s commitment to quality improvement.

The new Cornerstone programme is modular giving practices options and we’ve introduced accreditation levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Practices will need to complete two core modules - Equity and Continuous Quality Improvement, to be awarded Cornerstone Bronze accreditation. Practices can build on this, completing further modules to reach Silver or Gold status.
