NCSP Review 2014

Legislation requires regular, independent reviews of the NCSP to be undertaken. The second such review was prepared in late 2014 and took place in the first half of 2015.

The purpose of the review was to ensure the NCSP is of the highest possible quality, and continues to reduce rates of cervical cancer, and the number of women who die from it.

The following review committee members were appointed by Cabinet:

  • Dr Jeffrey Tan (Chair), who offers clinical expertise and research in obstetrics, gynaecology and colposcopy
  • Ms Linda Thompson, who offers extensive experience in Māori health, nursing and health management 
  • Ms Gail Ward, who offers expertise in cancer screening programme management.

The review was completed in June 2015 and the committee’s report is available below.
