The Medical Council of New Zealand held a second consultation on strengthening recertification for vocationally registered doctors starting September 2018.
We responded on 11 November 2018, based on member feedback which will continue to inform the College's direction of travel.
This work will have important implications for the College and College members.
Some of the key made in our response are:
- The College is largely supportive of the approach taken by the MCNZ.
- The proposed requirement for individual PDPs is likely to be the most significant stumbling block for general practice.
- Audit and peer review have real benefits for general practice.
- Health equity expectations need to be embedded within recertification requirements.
