Dr Jayant Patel: Medical Board proceedings

In Medical Board of Australia v Patel [2015] QCAT 133, the Tribunal made orders in this now well known matter, but with specific reference to the circumstances where the former doctor:

  • dishonestly caused false and misleading information to be given to a registration board to obtain special registration;
  • previously had conditions imposed on his registration by a foreign Board that were undisclosed; and
  • was convicted on criminal charges of fraud due to the misleading application for special registration.

The orders made included an order that the former doctor must never be registered as a health practitioner in the medical profession.

The Board’s application was undefended.
