The Safe Surgery NZ programme is delivered by a small team at the Commission and a clinical lead.

The clinical lead, Prof Ian Civil, works with the expert advisory group to:

  • provide overall direction and leadership
  • actively engage with the sector as a key aspect of implementation
  • resolve major issues escalated for consideration
  • engage with other clinical leads in the Commission
  • identify opportunities to enhance the programme.
