Quality Standards

The purpose of the National Policy and Quality Standards is to document the operational policy and quality standards of practice for providers of services within the Universal Newborn Hearing Screening and Early Intervention Programme (UNHSEIP).

These standards form part of the contract between the Ministry of Health and DHBs for the provision of UNHSEIP services. Both the National Policy and Quality Standards and Appendix F were updated in June 2013.
