Responsible Authorities, such as the Physiotherapy Board are required to undertake periodic performance reviews as mandated under section 122A of the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act (HPCAA) 2003.
The Ministry of Health is responsible for the facilitation of these reviews. Performance reviews provide assurance to the Crown and the public that responsible authorities are performing their functions efficiently and effectively. This includes the assurance that: the responsible authorities are carrying out their required functions in the interests of public safety, their activities focus on protecting the public without being compromised by professional self-interest, and their overall performance supports high public confidence in the regulatory system.
This initial performance review assessed the Physiotherapy Board’s performance against a full set of Core Performance Standards that are aligned with the functions under section 118 of the HCPA Act.
We are very pleased to provide the report and that all performance measures were met and there are no recommendations. A copy of the report can be found here.
