The mining town GP behind a failed court challenge over the 80/20 rule says he thought he was doing the right thing by refusing to turn away patients.

Dr Manukharan Nithianantha last month lost a Federal Court appeal against the Professional Services Review (PSR) over its finding that there were no exceptional circumstances to justify his extremely high volume of Medicare claims.
