The NZMPS executive structure is different to other competitors. Our elected executive consist of a President, Vice-President and Treasurer who must all be doctors, these executive members make all policy decisions for NZMPS.
The Secretary is appointed by the executive under the constitution and does not make policy decisions. Instead, the Secretary sees to the day-to-day operations of the organisation on behalf of the executive.
When we say "Run by Doctors for Doctors" we mean it.
Anne is excited to be part of NZMPS as a ground up organisation of members where truth and transparency are key qualities and protecting the right to free speech and ethical practice are valued as the erosion of scopes of practice has become commonplace.
Anne decided to deregister from the New Zealand Medical Council in May 2022 and is now training in Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy.
