They join existing Board members Tricia Briscoe (a Rotorua GP and IPA chairperson) and Sylvia Rosevear (an Auckland obstetrician and gynaecologist), who were re-elected. GP Council Chairman Philip Rushmer (an Auckland GP) and Specialists' Committee Chairman Deborah Greig (an Auckland dermatologist) are also members of the Board.
