Credentialing and Scope of Clinical Practice
The Rural and Remote Clinical Support Unit (RRCSU) Credentialing and Scope of Clinical Practice team processes credentialing and scope of clinical practice (SoCP) applications for:
- Medical Practitioners and Dentists working inm the 4 rural and remote Hospital and Health Services (HHS) - Torres and Cape, Central West, North West and South West
- General Practitioners working in Primary Care with the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS)
- Senior Relieving General Practitioners engaged by Queensland Country Practice (QCP)
The Credentialing Committee reviews and makes recommendations regarding SoCP to the relevant Health Service Chief Executive. The Chief Executive of Torres and Cape HHS has delegation to approve Statewide SoCP for RFDS and QCP.
All four (4) HHSs have adopted the Guide to Credentialing and Defining the SoCP for medical practitioners and dentists in Queensland, June 2014 as the overarching policy and process document used to support and guide the Credentialing process.

The RRCSU convenes the monthly Rural and Remote Credentialing Officers Network Group (RRCONG). The purpose of the this group is to provide regular updates and information sharing between RRCSU and the team members responsible for credentialing and SoCP in the four (4) HHSs.
