A former Victorian medical practitioner has been reprimanded and disqualified from applying for registration until 3 February 2022 after a tribunal made findings of professional misconduct against her.
The Medical Board of Australia (the Board) referred Dr Lorraine Lines to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (the tribunal) for professional misconduct. The Board brought seven allegations against Dr Lines, which related to her obstetric care of three patients at Bacchus Marsh Hospital (operated by Djerriwarrh Health Services) between 2013 and 2014. The tribunal found all seven allegations were proven and that Dr Lines had engaged in professional misconduct and unprofessional conduct.
Dr Lines is currently unregistered, having allowed her registration to lapse.
The full tribunal decision will be published on AustLII.
