COVID-19 RESPONSE - MCNZ - Activation of the Pandemic Scope of Practice.

Please pass on to any of your International and retired colleagues that may be able to help.

On 18 March 2020, the MCNZ – Medical Council for New Zealand - activated a gazetted special purpose scope of practice for disasters or pandemics.

This is the COVID-19 Pandemic scope of practice.

The New Zealand Ministry of Health is seeking expressions of interest from doctors who have let their registration or practising certificate lapse and would like to return to work for a limited amount of time as part of the national strategic approach to managing COVID-19.

They are seeking interest from doctors who ceased practice in the last three years.
