Two GPs stripped of their specialist status lose legal fight with Medical Board of Australia

The board admitted both doctors had a 'good reputation' within the profession.

Two GPs who were mistakenly granted specialist registration because of a paperwork blunder have lost their legal fight with the Medical Board of Australia.

Dr Kathryn Hutt and Dr Scott Porter were among a group of doctors asked to prove they were qualified GPs after the board discovered they had been mistakenly granted specialist status when AHPRA was set up in 2010.
