Governance for the Health Quality & Safety Commission's Safe Surgery NZ programme was provided by the strategic Safe Surgery NZ advisory group.

The group had representation from across the sector, including:

  • members of the Commission’s Safe Surgery NZ programme
  • the Perioperative Nurses College (NZNO)
  • the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons
  • the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
  • resident medical officers
  • private surgical providers
  • a human factors expert
  • a consumer representative
  • the Accident Compensation Corporation.

This group no longer meets on a regular basis – instead the Commission seeks advice from members as required.
