Our aim is to support the Quality of Endoscopy across the public and private sectors in New Zealand.
EGGNZ was developed in recognition of the need for a governance structure:
A forum for gaining professional consensus and agreement
Oversight to the quality improvement framework of the National Endoscopy Quality Improvement Programme (NEQIP) whose aim is to “facilitate safe, patient-focused endoscopy services that are efficient, accountable and sustainable”
Standards in Endoscopy
Development and oversight of Accreditation of Endoscopy Services to those standards
Coordination and consistency of Endoscopy Training across medical and nursing specialties
