Cancelled or suspended health practitioners

The Commission is required to publish the names of health practitioners whose registration has been cancelled or suspended by a NSW Tribunal. The Commission issues media releases in relation to such decisions.

The National Boards of health practitioners are required to record and make public the names of health practitioners whose registration has been cancelled under the Health Practitioners Regulation National Law. You can search for health practitioners whose registration has been cancelled on the website of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. Where practitioners have been suspended, it is recorded on the national register of health practitioners.

A health practitioner whose registration has been cancelled is forbidden to practise the profession. This means that a practitioner, whose registration has been cancelled or suspended in NSW, is automatically also banned from practising in all other Australian states and territories. In return, a practitioner whose registration was cancelled in another state or territory is automatically banned from working in the profession in NSW.

Reasons for the cancellation of a NSW practitioner’s registration are included in the relevant decision by the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal. For decisions relating to practitioners practising in other jurisdictions, please go to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency's website.
