Legislation - earlier rules and regulations

The statutory rules and regulations that govern the way we work have been updated many times over the years, and will continue to change as medical regulation develops to meet the needs of society.

It wouldn't be practical to list on these pages all of the previous versions of the Medical Act, or previous rules and regulations. However, a selection of previous rules is provided below.

Fitness to practise

Prior to 2004 there were separate rules dealing with the different aspects of doctors’ fitness to practise: conduct, health and performance.

These were replaced by the Communitybaptistpa (Fitness to practise) rules 2004 (pdf)

Links to the earlier rules are provided below:
