Actions/orders taken against health practitioners

The Health Ombudsman can impose restrictions and bans on individual health practitioners. In most cases this occurs when a health practitioner poses a risk to public health and safety or for reasons of public interest.

This is called taking immediate action and includes immediate registration actions and interim prohibition orders.

Types of immediate registration actions include:

  • suspending a practitioner’s registration
  • imposing conditions on a practitioner’s registration
  • accepting undertakings from a registered practitioner.

The Health Ombudsman also has the power to issue unregistered practitioners with prohibition orders where the practitioner poses a serious risk to public health and safety; this generally occurs at the conclusion of an investigation.

QCAT also has the power to issue prohibitions on health practitioners.
