Dr Ockelford has been the Deputy Chair for four years. He takes over from Hawkes Bay General Practitioner Dr Peter Foley, who has served as Chair for an unprecedented two terms.
Dr Foley is very pleased to be passing the leadership of this important pan-professional organisation to such a respected and capable Auckland based specialist.
“The NZMA has maintained a high profile in guiding policy developments that lead to better care for patients, and consequently happier lives for our membership. This will now continue well under Paul’s new team,” says Dr Foley.
Meanwhile, Dr Foley is looking forward to increasing his new work with the NZ Health Quality & Safety Commission.
