Staff supporting our council
Our Executive Officer is responsible for the management of Council business, subject to its directions. The Executive Officer plays a critical role in assessing the risk to public health and safety posed by practitioners who are the subject of a complaint.
Staff employed by the HPCA provide administrative, clinical and legal advice and services to support decision-making by the Council and its delegates in response to complaints and the management of practitioners who are the subject of conditions imposed on their registration. Staff also provide shared finance, IT and other services.
