Panel Decisions

As part of managing a notification (which is a concern or complaint about a registered health practitioner), National Boards may decide to refer a registered practitioner or student to a panel.

More information about managing notifications is published on the AHPRA website under complaints or concerns. More detailed information about panel hearings is also published on our website.

Under the National Law, a National Board has the power to establish two types of panel depending on the type of notification. There are health panels (for health matters) and performance and professional standards panels, for conduct and performance issues.

The two types of panel have different membership requirements and slightly different outcomes available. A student cannot be referred to a performance and professional standards panel.

Panels are established from a list of approved people, to hear allegations about a particular practitioner. Under the National Law, panels must include members from the relevant health profession as well as community members. Health panels must include a medical practitioner. Each National Board has a list of approved people who may be called on to sit on a panel.

The table below records panel hearing decisions made since July 2010. Summaries have been provided where there is educational and clinical value. These summaries are accessible from hyperlinks within the table. Practitioners' names are not published, consistent with the requirements of the National Law. This table does not include summaries of panel decisions made under previous legislation, even if these were held after July 2010.
