Doctor found guilty of making ‘bad faith’ complaints to AHPRA

The doctor had falsely accused their colleague of causing a patient’s death by suicide

A doctor who made false complaints to AHPRA about a colleague, including that he had caused a patient’s death by suicide, has been found guilty of professional misconduct. 

The subject of the complaints, a locum doctor, was forced out of work temporarily after the Medical Board of Australia placed strict supervision conditions on his registration while investigating.
