The Ministry of Health has advised that the Minister of Health has approved the revised Health and Disability Services Standard. HealthCERT is now working hard to align their processes with the revised standard. And we at DAA Group are doing the same.
Any organisations that have a scheduled audit from February next year will be audited against the revised standard. Copies of the revised standard can be obtained electronically free of charge from the Standards NZ website: https://www.standards.govt.nz/shop/nzs-81342021/
Dr Ashley Bloomfield has recorded an introduction to the revised standards. You can view it here:
HealthCERT are holding a series of webinars starting 14 July 2021 at lunchtime about the revised standards. You can find more information about these and register for them here:
