Two eye surgeons have been fined for breaching Covid-19 health orders by seeing patients without being vaccinated.
A Ministry of Health spokesperson said the pair have both been deregistered with the Medical Council and can no longer practise.
Both received infringement notices from the ministry which carry a $4000 fine for each one.
They say Napier surgeon Phil Macdonald has received two fines.
Dr Deepak Gupta in Dunedin has also been fined – for the third time.
Anyone who was treated by Dr Macdonald or Dr Gupta from late January onwards is urged to contact the Ministry of Health.
