Purpose of the Network

The purpose of the New Zealand Child & Youth Newborn Clinical Network (the Network) is to establish a national multi-disciplinary network that will support clinicians working across primary, secondary and tertiary services to deliver high quality, cost effective and integrated newborn treatment programmes for babies and their whanau.  The aim of the Network is to provide clinical leadership in the development and maintenance of a sustainable nation-wide, clinical service for newborns as close to home as is practicable.   This will be achieved by a multi-prong approach with the appointment of a national, multi-disciplinary Clinical Reference Group consisting of Medical and Nursing Clinical Leaders.  The Group will provide advice on service and treatment issues to the Paediatric Society of New Zealand and to the Ministry of Health (MOH).
