GP believed complaint about her prescribing was defamatory: tribunal

The Melbourne GP also alleged a Medical Board of Australia report was fabricated and the GP who wrote it 'was not a real person'.

A GP has failed to convince a tribunal that a complaint about her controlled drug prescribing was defamatory and that a report critical of her practice was fabricated.

Based in Melbourne’s inner west, she launched an appeal against a Medical Board of Australia decision to impose conditions requiring her to be supervised when prescribing S8 drugs and undergo three-monthly audits.
