Waikato District Health Board say it’s on track to re­gain its train­ing ac­cred­i­ta­tion later this year. The DHB was stripped of its ac­cred­i­ta­tion for ob­stet­rics and gy­nae­col­ogy in De­cem­ber 2015 after fail­ing to meet three of seven stan­dards set by the Royal Aus­tralian and New Zealand Col­lege of Ob­ste­tri­cians and Gy­nae­col­o­gists (RANZCOG). The loss af­fected the Women’s Health ser­vice and meant the DHB was not able to train ju­nior doc­tors. An in­de­pen­dent re­port sub­se­quently com­mis­sioned by the DHB high­lighted ma­jor con­cerns with the Women’s Health ser­vice at Waikato Hospi­tal. Women’s Health Com­mis­sioner Tanya Maloney, said the DHB was on tar­get to re­gain its train­ing sta­tus later this year
