Health Quality & Safety Commission Deputy Chair, Dr Peter Foley, has been recognised for his extensive contribution to New Zealand’s health services in the Queen’s Birthday and Diamond Jubilee Honours list.

As well as his role with the Commission Dr Foley is also the Chief Medical Officer of Primary Care for the Hawke’s Bay District Health Board and works as a GP in his Napier practice. He has also served as Chair of both the New Zealand Medical Association (NZMA) and the NZMA General Practitioner Council, and was the inaugural Chair of the GP Leaders Forum.

The Commission is delighted Dr Foley has been made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit. Commission Chief Executive Dr Janice Wilson says Dr Foley makes an enormous contribution to the Commission, not only at a strategic level but also because of his experience working with individuals and communities.

“Peter has worked tirelessly to improve our health services and this honour is well deserved.”
