Statistics

The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme requires that information about every registered health practitioner in Australia is published on a single national register of practitioners.

Performance data

AHPRA believes in the importance of public reporting of our data. This reporting ensures greater accountability and transparency on matters of public importance and is one of the mechanisms to encourage us, as an organisation, to continuously improve our performance.

From April 2016, in addition to our annual report and the state, territory and professional summaries, for the first time we are now publishing quarterly performance reports.

These reports provide information for the public on the activities and performance of AHPRA and the National Boards in each state and territory. They contain data on a particular state or territory over a three month period and cover our main areas of activity – managing registration, managing notifications and offences against the National Law, and monitoring health practitioners and students with restrictions on their registration. (These reports are on the performance of AHPRA and the National Boards and, therefore, do not include notification data for NSW. In NSW, notifications are managed by the relevant Health Professional Council and the Health Care Complaints Commission).

AHPRA’s reporting of its activity and performance is evolving. We ask for your feedback about our performance and our new reporting approach. Your contribution can help ensure the continued value of our future reports. You can provide feedback by emailing: reportingfeedback@ahpra.gov.au.

To find out about our data access and research policy, please view the data access and research page.
