Doctor deregistered for explicit photos

A doctor jailed for taking explicit photographs of his female patients in 2004 and 2005 has been deregistered indefinitely.

Gurmit Dhillon, 65, is serving a two-year jail term for secretly taking digital pictures of nine women after unecessarily asking them to remove their underpants.

Police found 70 pictures after seizing a camera, hard drive and three laptops.

Dhillon is eligible for parole in October.

The Medical Professional Conduct Tribunal today ruled he should be suspended as a GP indefinitely for bringing the profession into disrepute.

He has also been ordered to pay $15,000 in costs to the Medical Board.
