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:

  • to support the National Endoscopy Quality Improvement Programme (NEQIP)
  • to establish a quality improvement framework based on the New Zealand Global Rating Scale (NZGRS), and
  • to establish quality standards for the implementation of the New Zealand Bowel Screening Programme.
