GP struck off for ‘abhorrent’ Facebook posts after four-year emergency suspension

The tribunal said that Dr Michael Ellis' posts denigrated former colleagues and suggested chemotherapy was unhelpful for several cancers.

A GP suspended for years under emergency powers after posting that vaccines were a guise for “re-engineering humans” and likening his former practice’s receptionists to Nazis has been disqualified for 12 months.

The case of Melbourne GP Dr Michael Ellis finally reached a tribunal in February, four years after he was suspended for comments published between March 2017 and March 2020.
