Over the past 5 years, we at Criminal Lawyers Perth have been receiving an increasing number of instructions from medical practitioners facing the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and relevant regulatory licensing authorities such as the Medical Board of Western Australia.
We are experts at interpreting and applying to your case the various legal and policy frameworks. The frameworks comprise: National Law; and/or, Medical Practitioners Act 2008 (WA); The Duties of a Medical Practitioner Registered with the Medical Board of Western Australia (March 2008) (2008 Policy); a Code of Conduct for Doctors in Australia (2010) (2010 Code); a Code of Conduct for Doctors in Australia (March 2014) (2014) Code); a Code of conduct for doctors in Australia (October 2020), (2020 Code); and Sexual Boundaries: Guidelines for doctors (28 October 2011) (Guidelines).
We regularly appear in the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) and before the Medical Board of Western Australia to defend our clients.
If you have received a Concerns Notice from AHPRA you will need competent and comprehensive legal assistance from our legal practitioners at Criminal Lawyers Perth experienced in the above laws and policies.
