"It needs to go from an assessment stage to a full-blown investigation stage, but that investigation won't be effective unless witnesses are given protection," he said.
"And it's only a commission of inquiry that will be able to give potential witnesses the protection and confidence for them to come forward and tell the truth, tell their story."
The medical board declined 7:30's request for interview, but released a statement saying its role is to protect the public but that it must also be fair, lawful and provide natural justice to practitioners.
