Maternity Ultrasound Guidance

New Zealand Obstetric Ultrasound Guidelines

The Ministry of Health is inviting feedback on the new, draft New Zealand Obstetric Ultrasound Guidelines.

The guidelines have been developed to support radiology professionals and lead maternity carers to deliver nationally consistent, clinically appropriate and high-quality maternity ultrasound services.

They have been drafted by a working group of clinical sector experts, with support from the Ministry of Health.

The guidelines are a key recommendation of the Maternity Ultrasound Advisory Group, which was a sub-group of the National Maternity Monitoring Group.

The draft guidelines are available to view on the Ministry of Health consultation website

The deadline for submissions is 3 May 2019, with the final guidelines planned for publication in the middle of 2019.
