NZMA Working Tirelessly For You Our Members - Here's How

The NZMA is working tirelessly for you in a number of ways including:

  • taking your concerns to the highest  level of Government, Ministry of Heath, DHBs & PHOs to raise and address these
  • getting issues in front of the media, as appropriate, and giving factual information; you will note there has been huge activity by NZMA in this space  the past week
  • answering your questions  and giving advice about the impact of COVID-19  on your work, training, education, health and wellbeing  as a medical professional 
  • making submissions in response to various consultations and developing position statements on key issues
  • communication on critical matters -  we work for you our members. 

For employment advice NZMA has developed a specific employment COVID-19 advisory for anyone in private practice.  You can also access it here, but will need your NZMA login.
