Requested by: Private Individual | Response provided: 17/07/2020
Category: Disciplinary Action

I write in response to your Official Information Act request, received by us on 23 June 2020, via transfer from the Ministry of Health under section 14 of the Act. You requested the following information.  

  • I respectfully request a list of all of the "relevant authorities" to which physicians must report "unsafe or unethical practices", with the understanding that criminal behaviour would be included under either "unsafe or unethical practices".
  • I also request a copy of all DHB policies in regards to reporting unsafe, harmful, criminal behaviour, including the re-routing and interception of private communications, and policies on how they document such incidents and how they are to safeguard against such incidents, as the Operational Framework does indeed require every DHB to have such policies.
