Medical Council News

Welcome to the latest issue of Medical Council News which we hope will be of interest to you.

In this issue, Dr Mark Peterson, Chair, The New Zealand Medical Association has contributed a thought provoking article on the Association’s revised Code of Ethics. We would strongly urge you to read both Dr Peterson’s article, ‘Medical ethics at heart of the profession’ and take the opportunity to also read the Code of Ethics.

Dr Kevin Morris, one of our medical advisers writes of the need for all doctors, whether in clinical or nonclinical practice, to hold a current practising certificate. We again look at another chapter from Cole’s Medical practice in New Zealand – this time about medical records and patient access to information.

We also acknowledge Professor John Nacey, Council member and Chair of the Council’s Education Committee who has been honoured with the 2014 Geoffrey Marel Medal by the Confederation of Post-graduate Medical Education Councils (CPMEC) for his exceptional contribution to promoting prevocational training.
