Orders against health practitioners

Check if a health practitioner's registration is up to date, or if they have a protective order against them.

The Health Ombudsman can impose restrictions and bans on individual health service providers who are a risk to public health and safety or for reasons of public interest.

This is called taking immediate action.

There are 2 types of immediate actions: immediate registration actions and prohibition orders.

Immediate registration actions

Immediate registration actions apply only to registered health practitioners. The Office of the Health Ombudsman (OHO) works with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra) and the 15 health practitioner National Boards to oversee and regulate registered health practitioners in Queensland.

In taking immediate registration action the Health Ombudsman either:

  • imposes conditions on the practitioner's registration
  • or suspends the practitioner's registration.

An immediate registration action can only be removed by the Health Ombudsman or Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

For complete information about the current registration status of registered practitioners, including suspensions, restrictions, conditions, undertakings and reprimands of any registered health practitioner, search the online register of practitioners on the Ahpra website.

Below is a list of registered practitioners subject to immediate registration action that the Health Ombudsman has decided to publish on this website. Not every immediate registration action is published here.

Prohibition orders

Prohibition orders apply to unregistered health service providers. These are practitioners who do not require registration under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (Queensland) (the National Law) and are not overseen by Ahpra. Prohibition orders also apply to registered health practitioners providing health services outside their scope of registration.

In issuing a prohibition order the Health Ombudsman either:

  • imposes restrictions on the practitioner's practise
  • or prohibits the practitioner from providing a health service.

The Health Ombudsman can impose both interim and permanent prohibition orders.

Below is a list of all prohibition orders taken by the Health Ombudsman against unregistered health service providers.

Removing an immediate action order

A health service provider can request the Health Ombudsman reconsider their immediate action order.

Health service providers can also apply to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) to review their immediate action order. QCAT can decide to uphold the order or set it aside. Some practitioners may be permanently prohibited from providing health services following a QCAT decision. This will be shown in the table above.
