Mr Hunt said it was an individual practitioner who made an error. “This is an individual practitioner who has clearly made an error and around the country, and you will remember from multiple press conferences, I’ve indicated that whether it’s the flu, whether it’s other things, during the course of any one year, there would be challenges, issues and errors.
“Ordinarily they wouldn’t necessarily be focused on, they’d be dealt with through the ordinary measures. Because of the national focus on this, it’s natural and understandable that those things which would ordinarily occur are given greater prominence.”
Mr Hunt said an investigation would determine whether the doctor had completed the correct vaccine training.
“On the training, we have highly developed modules. It’s a requirement that anybody who participates has completed those modules,” he said.
“In relation to the individual doctor, we’ll leave that to the investigation as to whether or not they either did not understand or did not complete [those modules], but it is a serious breach in terms of following the protocol …
“We have had a couple of medical practices that have made the point that they felt [the training] was too comprehensive – that it was tailored to the specific skill sets of the nurses and perhaps it wasn’t too comprehensive for some of the doctors.
“In fact, it is comprehensive and what it does mean is that everybody has to follow the protocols.”
