Here's a good decision exposing ACC's deliberate corruption/interference of yet another medical assessment. It involves not just provision of Dr Jansen's opinion, inclusive of ACC's predetermined outcome from any assessment to the assessor, but it was further corrupted by the fact that Jansens's opinion was contradcited the medical facts on file, wrong in law, speculative and without having met or examined the claimant concerned. Sound familiar?Why hasn't Jansen been disciplined for his systemic abuse of both the ethical and professional standards required by the NZ Medical Council.This is a clearly an abuse of process whereby the claimant was forced to defend their position against ACC's illegal, unethical and immoral activity which breached professional standards.It makes you wonder if Jansen received KPI'S bonuses for exits/acturial gain aka 'effective rehabilitation'. Maybe this is exactly why Jansen left ACC without unexplanation - because there were too many complaints and ACC didn't want to have to deal with it?http://www.nzlii.org...CC/2013/143.pdfThis decision outlines how Dr Wyness, a psychiatrist, was briefed by ACC via the provision of Dr Jansens flawed medical opinion.Dr Jansen opined that the claimant no longer had entitlements. (Yet Judge Joyce ultimately ruled that Dr Jansen's opinion was wrong and misconstrued!)Dr Jansen's report led to Dr Wyness doing a complete turn around from his original opinions. This leads one to question how much spine Dr Wyness really has, and is he truly independent of ACC if he allows himself to be influenced by biased medical opinions providing by an ACC desk doctor (Jansen) who operates to financial objectives, and who has met or physically assessed the claimant concerned. Dodgy.Then you have a Sanchia Logie who says the claimant who is being looked after by her family and has a pain disorder would benefit from psychological treatment. Then in the same report Logie claims the neuro psychological/cognitive problems are unrelated to the physical injury, but rather she suspects the claimant of malingering for secondary gain!! This sounds like a true ACC toad report which is bordering of being defamatory. Logie wouldn't have a clue about how debilitating chronic pain and spinal nerve damage is, nor the impact of pain on sleep, medication, depression etc from the injury, and the effect these have on cognitive processes, quite aside from this claimants head injury. No Logie would rather assign it to malingering and non injury cause, and that it can all be overcome with a few hours of chat to a pscyhologist. Yeah right. This is unbelievable arrogance from a mere psychologist, who's clearly a wannabe doctor.Points 20-40 of the decision are most relevant.Judge Joyce is to be comended for picking up on the corruption/interference by ACC/Dr Jansen in the medical assessment process, and that prior to ACC's influence over these assessors, there had been consistent reporting in relation to this claimant as having a chronic disability and pain disorder (point 32)Long live Judge Joyce. He's a breath of fresh air.

Time ACC doctors ceased the practice of desk assessments without the claimant even knowing about it.
I think it is even more disgusting that DRSL reviewers will play along with such shonky assessments.
With a little bit of honesty a reviewer will recognise such an assessment for what it is and find in favour of the claimant.

I hope our lawyer reads that information before our review date in August 2013. We've been advised to fly from Auckland to Christchurch to meet with a neurologist. Apparently it is still really hard to find one in Auckland who can be independent of ACC. My husband's recent file is full of Jansen's brilliant opinions and it was interesting to read about similar cases.

As a matter of interest I think the Bollum Rule or Criteria is to do with a case in UK. Previous entry had typo for the name. See below.

Bolam v Friern Hospital Management Committee [1957] 1 WLR 582 is an English tort law case that lays down the typical rule for assessing the appropriate standard of reasonable care in negligence cases involving skilled professionals (e.g. doctors): the Bolam test. Where the defendant has represented him or herself as having more than average skills and abilities, this test expects standards which must be in accordance with a responsible body of opinion, even if others differ in opinion. In other words, the Bolam test states that "If a doctor reaches the standard of a responsible body of medical opinion, he is not negligent".

Why a GP would even offer an opinion over a specialist dr is beyond me, acc is such a farce, it is the worse insult and sickens me.

If people are claiming that ACC medical assessors are corrupt, why is it that I am the only one that has initiated a private criminal prosecution?

you make assumptions Alan...


you are not the only person on this forum...and your battles with acc....are not the only ones being fought....

rather narcissistic to think its all about you!


there have been many changes within the acc already...because some of us have been fighting very hard, legally, cleanly, and with no criminal record!...and have already instigated changes within the system that are being kept very quiet....

quite simply...the opinion of a bought and paid acc medical ""assessor"" can never take precedent over the facts of medico legal reporting, by highly trained specialists, who use real evidence to write their reports......


its that the acc favour the opinion, therefore to keep their jobs, the bought and paid fors....keep writing, and are now being exposed.....by MANY of us



the psych fraternity think that Du Plessis is a joke...especially after his self effacing interview, following the privacy breaches....!

NTV
Have you heard of a claimant initiated a private criminal prosecution of ACC medical assessors?
