Mr Woody Hulst – Unsatisfactory professional conduct – Caution and conditions

29 Nov 2019

The Health Care Complaints Commission prosecuted a complaint against chiropractor Mr Woody Hulst before the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (‘the Tribunal’).  The complaint alleged that Dr Hulst had been convicted of criminal offences relating to the supply of prohibited drugs in 2017 and that Mr Hulst failed to notify AHPRA of his convictions within seven days.

Mr Hulst admitted all the allegations against him. 

On 28 November 2019 the Tribunal found the conduct amounted to unsatisfactory professional conduct.  In its order, and noting he had undertaken several reformative steps since the conduct and convictions, the Tribunal cautioned Mr Hulst and ordered he engage in professional mentoring and therapy, both to be monitored by the Chiropractic Council of NSW.

The Tribunal’s decision can be found on the NSW Caselaw website.
