Picture: PETER SANDERSFOLLOWING a three- month dispute with the Medical Council of Tasmania, Scottsdale doctor Paul McGinity started his day at 8am yesterday treating 12 patients at his Bridport surgery. The doctor, who was suspended by the Medical Council of Tasmania on March 27 and again on May 18 said he was greeted by flowers and balloons at the practice. “It was marvellous, really, very nice. There were balloons and flowers,” Dr McGinity said. His day continued at Scottsdale and finished with early evening surgery at Derby. Dr McGinity said he hoped he would be busy. The dispute involved the doctor’s successful appeal against his March 27 suspension on a legal technicality followed three days later by his re-suspension with an extra 11 complaints by the Department of Health and Human Services and eight anonymous complaints. Under conditions negotiated with the council, Dr McGinity can work 60 hours a week from 8am to 8pm at his rooms at Derby, Bridport and Scottsdale. At Scottsdale he must work with a locum alongside. The return to work was successful, Dr McGinity said. “When you do something every day you have a routine. When you have been away for three months you have to pick up the reins,” he said. Strong community support for his right to continue practising medicine in the North- East will continue, campaigner Yasmin Rawnsley said. “The community is feeling great that he is back for the moment,” Mrs Rawnsley said.
