The July cohort will be added to UCCIS around the time of your rollover (Fellows), with possible early access to registrars if we have a training programme function available.

We'll be providing tutorial webinars on some of the UCCIS features, plus a few 'how-to' tips, with the first one being Thursday 31 March at 6pm. In case you cannot attend this one, we'll record it, and it will be the first of many.

    Co-option to standing committee, expressions of interest sought

    We are looking for members to be co-opted to standing committees.

    The Facilities Audit Committee is especially looking for those interested in forwarding the application of the Urgent Care Standard which we use to set the standards required of an urgent care clinic. Ideally those interested have been a technical advisor for either DAA or BSI/Q-Audit previously as strong knowledge of the UCS is important. This is NOT mandatory though, so anyone who is interested please email the General Manager (adrian@rnzcuc.org.nz).

    The convenors of the standing committees are still deciding on the make-up of the committee, but if you are interested at all in co-option or to support a committee, please email the General Manager (adrian@rnzcuc.org.nz) to express your interest.
