The Physiotherapy Board's vision is Fostering Excellence in Physiotherapy.

The Physiotherapy Board (the Board) is the regulatory authority for Physiotherapists, established under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 (HPCA Act).  The principal purpose of the Act is to protect the health and safety of members of the public by providing for mechanisms to ensure that health practitioners are competent and fit to practise their professions.

Additional Professional Advisor joining the Physiotherapy Board     

It is with absolute pleasure that I announce Jonathan Warren is joining the Secretariat of the Board as an additional Professional Advisor starting in late June this year.

Jonathan is currently studying for his Doctorate of Health Science and is an Assistant Professor at the University of St Augustine for Health Sciences in San Diego. He brings a strong knowledge base and experience in academic, clinical, management and leadership environments.

Jonathan is well known both nationally and internationally and will be a familiar face to many.  He is joining our team at an exciting time with the implementation of the new Bi National Physiotherapy Practice Thresholds, an environment of increasing complaints and notifications, and a programme of continuous improvement in the way we work and the service we provide.

We wish to warmly welcome Jonathan and his family back to New Zealand and look forward to him joining the team.
