There are fresh calls for weblinks to adverse tribunal decisions against doctors to be removed from AHPRA’s public register after five years, amid claims they are unfairly harming doctors.

Avant says AHPRA’s current policy of including the links on the register in perpetuity is in some cases more draconian than sanctions imposed by the criminal system.
