At any time during the PSR process, a referral to a regulatory body can be made in certain circumstances. This will occur if the Director, a Committee or the Determining Authority is concerned that a practitioner has not complied with professional standards or has caused significant threat to somebody’s life or health. Such a referral can be made to AHPRA or another regulatory authority.
If there is concern that a practitioner has behaved fraudulently, PSR can refer the matter to the Chief Executive Medicare for further consideration or investigation. It is not PSR's role to pursue potential criminal activity.
