Health Quality and Safety Commission

The Health Quality & Safety Commission (the Commission) was established in November 2010 in response to concern that only modest improvements in health quality and safety had been achieved at a national level over previous years.

The Commission’s role is to lead and coordinate work across the health and disability sector to monitor, support, promote and improve the quality and safety of services across the sector.  It’s vision is for New Zealand to have a world-class and patient-centered health care and disability support system supporting the New Zealand Triple Aim of:

  • improved quality, safety and experience of care
  • improved health and equity for all populations
  • best value for public health system resources
