The Health Ombudsman took immediate registration action by imposing conditions on the registration of Philip Leonhard Trudinger, effective 2 August 2022.

Details of Philip Leonhard Trudinger's registration, including the full list of imposed conditions, can be viewed on the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency website.

The conditions imposed include the requirement that Philip Leonard Trudinger must:

  • not have contact with female patients under 18 years of age.
  • take all reasonable steps to ensure female patients under the age of 18, or their parent or guardian, are told at the time of wanting to book an appointment with the practitioner that they cannot. The practitioner must not provide this information to patients personally.

In accordance with section 62(2) of the Health Ombudsman Act 2013 (the Act), the Health Ombudsman’s decision will continue to have effect until:

  • the Health Ombudsman removes the conditions imposed on Philip Leonhard Trudinger's registration under section 65 of the Act.
