This report describes options for a national governance structure for endoscopy quality improvement and related initiatives. The purpose of this report is for stakeholders to consider the options and provide comment on what the preferred option should be. This report builds on the work on a national governance framework previously undertaken by the National Endoscopy Quality Improvement Programme (NEQIP).

The brief was to consider the following functions and relationships, and how they might best be incorporated into a national framework:

  • Leadership/governance.
  • NZGRS.
  • Unit-level accreditation.
  • Training.
  • Workforce (planning and capacity and demand).
  • An advisory function.
