From November, the Ministry of Health will trial a new system whereby full rest home audit reports will be available online in addition to the audit summaries that are already available.

According to a press release by Associate Health Minister Jo Goodhew, "other changes to the website will allow people to see if a rest home has any current problems and what's being done to fix them. Historical audit summaries going back to 2009 will also be published so people can see what progress has been made and if there are any ongoing issues".
