Plaintiff access to patient names

With thanks to Tim Hackett for noting a decision on whether or not a plaintiff should be able to inspect and copy a confidential list of patient names filed by a defendant medical practitioner: Tikiri Pty Limited v Fung [2016] VSC 460.

The decision arose in the context of a dispute between a medical centre and a doctor previously employed at that centre.

Inspection of the list of patient names was not allowed.
