The attached consultation document seeks your views on Council’s proposal to withdraw its special purpose (teleradiology) scope of practice.
The Council acknowledges its statutory obligations to consult on proposed changes to scopes of practices (under s 14 of the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003), but more than that sees such consultation as a fundamental element in its engagement with the profession and other stakeholders over matters in which the profession has an interest. Council welcomes your submissions.
The consultation document sets out the background and reasons for the proposed withdrawal. It concludes with a number of questions designed to assist you in your responses. Your responses to these questions will help ensure that Council not only has a full understanding of implications for the profession but also identifies any questions of public health and safety that may need to be considered as part of this proposed change.
Please provide your submission/feedback to Laura Lumley by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to PO Box 10509, The Terrace, Wellington 6143 by 5pm, Tuesday 11 November 2014.
