The College’s official stance on health issues; position statements provide advice for the government and health organisations.
About our position statements
College position statements are developed for issues of particular importance or in response to new developments. They are formed after reviewing recent literature, existing College documents and the position statements of other health organisations in New Zealand and overseas.
Gender pay equity
The College considers it unacceptable for female GPs to be paid less than male GPs for identical work requiring the same level of skill and time. As an employer, the College encourages general practice employers and GP employees to take responsibility for ensuring remuneration levels are appropriate.
