An Ocean Grove doctor has been suspended by the national medical board this week following sexual assault allegations.
Dr Shafiul Milky is now ineligible to practise after the Medical Board of Australia (MBA) made the “interim decision” on Monday as it undertakes further enquiries.
The MBA can suspend a practitioner’s registration if it believes they pose a “serious risk” to the public, according to the Australian Health Practioner Regulation Agency.
“We are unable to comment further due to privacy provisions in the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law,” a MBA spokesperson said.
Dr Milky worked at Peninsula Family Medical Practice from 2012 until last July with the MBA banning him from seeing female patients earlier this year.
Law firm Adviceline Injury Lawyers announced last month it was investigating a client’s legal options against Dr Milky.
It comes as police confirmed this week an Ocean Grove GP remains under ongoing investigation for a number of sexual assault allegations.
“The incidents date back seven years with the most recent reported incident occurring this year,” a police spokesperson said.
Police have yet to confirm the name of the GP under the investigation and the Indy is not suggesting it involves Dr Milky.
Dr Milky studied medicine at a college in Bangladesh and was issued with a certificate from the Australian Medical Council in 2012.
His registration is due to expire at the end of this month.
