Notes

"September 2005"

Commissioner: Jerrold Cripps QC.

"The Commission's first report [into "alleged misconduct associated with the former South Western Sydney Area Health Service"], presented in April 2005, dealt with the alleged mistreatment of nurses who complained to the Hon Craig Knowles MP, the former NSW Minister for Health. This report deals with a wide range of additional allegations made by numerous persons, most of whom were nurses employed by SWSAHS. The Commission found that none of the allegations were substantiated. Consequently, the Commission did not make any finding that any person engaged in corrupt conduct or any recommendation that consideration be given to taking criminal or disciplinary action against any person."--Covering letter to Parliament by Commissioner Jerrold Cripps QC, p. 3.
