'I've learnt a very, very valuable lesson'

Dr Jackie Forrester is the GP at the centre of the furore over the Medical Weightloss Institute (MWI).

The institute, which went bust last month, was recently savaged in a public warning from the NSW Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC) for targeting vulnerable patients with high-cost treatments that carried risks of serious contraindications and side effects.

Dr Forrester says the experience has been a nightmare. But she vows to continue her work treating former MWI patients.
