Chiro struck off for sexual misconduct

A CHIROPRACTOR accused of sexual misconduct with female patients has been reprimanded by the Chiropractic Tribunal of NSW and disqualified from practising for three years.

The tribunal found Paul Matthew Eather, who worked at Hills Family Chiropractic, in Castle Hill, engaged in unsatisfactory professional conduct and professional misconduct in relation to four patients.

He was accused of engaging in inappropriate sexual conduct with two patients, entering inappropriate sexual relationships with two others, failure to refer a patient to an appropriate counsellor, failing to make appropriate clinical notes, and entering into a sexual relationship with an employee, over the period between August 2007 and August 2009.

The Tribunal found Mr Eather “provided no evidence… which would indicate that he has any insight into the gravity of his actions or that he now recognises that his conduct was unacceptable”.
