The Health Ombudsman issued an interim prohibition order imposing restrictions on the provision of health services provided by Ngaoire Strickland Glassie effective 20 May 2024.

The restrictions imposed include the requirements the practitioner:

  • The practitioner must not practise in any role requiring direct patient contact (including supervision of other practitioners engaged in direct patient contact). The practitioner may only use their professional knowledge to practise in management, administration, education, research, advisory, regulatory or policy development roles that do not require direct patient contact.
    For the purpose of this condition, a ‘patient’ is defined as any individual awaiting, requiring, or receiving the professional services of an unregistered or registered health practitioner.
  • The practitioner must only practise as a health practitioner in employment and at practice locations approved by the Health Ombudsman and published on the Office of the Health Ombudsman website.

The practitioner does not currently have Health Ombudsman approval to practise in any employment or practice location.

In accordance with section 73(2) of the Health Ombudsman Act 2013 (the Act), the order continues to have effect until the earliest of the following happens –

  • the order ends under section 90H of the Act;
  • QCAT sets aside the decision to issue the order on application by the practitioner for a review of the decision;
