A former Chief Psychiatrist can return to practice, after he was suspended under emergency powers over a relationship with a woman he helped in the course of his state role. 

Until his suspension last year, Dr Aaron Groves was the chief psychiatrist in Tasmania — having held the same position previously in SA, WA and Queensland.
