Medical practitioner: Undisclosed criminal charges

Medical Board of Australia v Taylor records an agreed outcome of a disciplinary matter, which included reference to the doctor (a radiologist) having given the Board  information that was false or misleading in a material particular in successive applications for registration.  Consequently, his registration was improperly obtained, pursuant to s 193(1)(b) National Law.

The respondent was asked whether he had any criminal history in a country other than Australia, and the respondent answered ‘No’, in circumstances where it was stated on the registration form, that ‘criminal history includes every charge made against a person for an offence’.

Further background information appears in an ABC news report.
