Local medical community cheers Dr Vega Vega result

CQ LOCAL Medical Association chairman Dr Michael Donohue said he was pleased with Judge Alexander Horneman-Wren's decision to allow Dr Antonio Vega Vega to practice again.

"The local medical community is very pleased that QCAT have exonerated Dr Vega Vega and we look forward to him returning to work in the near future in whatever capacity he chooses," Dr Donohue. "We hope that the CQ Hospital and Health Board reflects very carefully on their original decision to so publicly and inappropriately vilify him."

Central Queensland Hospital and Health Service chief executive Len Richards reiterated his position that the service was awaiting the completion of a thorough external investigation into this matter.

"Our primary concern is for the safety of the patients who rely on us to provide their health care," Mr Richards said.
