Director of Proceedings
The Director of Proceedings (DP) is a lawyer appointed
under the Health and Disability Commissioner Act.
When the Commissioner has found a breach of consumer rights, he
may refer the provider to the DP.
The DP reviews the case and makes an independent decision on
whether or not to take any further action.
A team of lawyers and assistants works with him, reviewing files
and prosecuting cases.
