NSQHS Standards Short notice assessments

From July 2023, short notice assessments will be mandatory for all health service organisations assessed to the NSQHS Standards.

All health services need to fully comply with the requirements of the NSQHS Standards for clinical and corporate service provision and have processes in place to demonstrate compliance at any time.

All eight NSQHS Standards will be assessed during a short notice assessment, which will occur once every three years. Health services with clinical trial services will include assessment to the Governance Framework.
