Extend your knowledge and experience outside of the practice room and into external committees led by the Ministry of Health, PHARMAC, ACC and more.

Why we need representatives

Policy makers need insights into how the sector works, the capabilities and capacity of general practice and the potential unintended consequences of the decisions they make.

This is where you come in

Take your curiosity of modern health issues and jump into important discussions with other like-minded doctors. This is your chance to influence the key decision making that contributes to a variety of initiatives in government bodies and health agencies across New Zealand.

Unless bound by a confidentiality agreement, talking to your peers is essential when forming a particular position on topics presented in a committee. You can take this discussion further by asking the College to request feedback from members in relevant professional interest groups. Depending on the objectives of the committee, you will be required to either meet in person or attend a teleconference up to three or four times a year.
