Don't worry about what he is like.

Make sure you take the right info to the assessment.

Get a report from your GP, and specialist, stating what your condition is, and how your long term injury will affect your life.

The more info you can provide, the better report Dr Gorman will give you.

Don't reley on ACC to provide this.

Dr Des Gormam.
Trained as a dive Doctor, so if you get the bends he send you round the bend I expect.
He was a Navy Doctor.
He did some training in Rehab and then he started up a course in Rehab medicine so called.
He was ACC Medical advisor and we all recall the Catalyst days with Rankin and Gorman advocating long term claimants could sit in a paddock and yell at each other. This came from the Gorman school.
He is now a Professor at Akld uni.
He is a lying toad but his report could be easier to overthrow, you cant have a Professor telling lies can you.
Actually I have a friend in Dunedn and he flew down there to do assessments for ACC and he actually gave this guy a marvellous report and ordered ACC to give him more help and entitlements.
Sorry I have never had dealings with him but many on forum have had a bad report from this guy.

Some years ago there was a lot of controversy over Fibromyalgia and Gorman said no such thing exists and not ACC responsibility.
Some time later, all that was overthrown when he an d ACC found out that it was accepted as a medical complaint following injury worldwide. So ACC and little NZ had to toe the line.
Go gorman

This has been dragged out of 2005 archives.
What is the point of dragging out past history?. Things have moved on from here.
I dont have the time to troll forum looking for the past

Professor Des Gorman - BSc, MBChB, PhD
Des graduated from the University with a BSc in 1975, and an MBChB in 1978. He continued his education with a PhD at the University of Sydney, which he completed while he was serving with the Australian Navy. During this time he emerged as dux of the Royal Navy Submarine School Officers' Course and was named Royal Australian Navy Officer of the Year.

On returning to New Zealand, Des was Director of Medical Services for the Royal New Zealand Navy from 1989 to 1995.

In 1995 he joined the staff of the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences as head of the Department of Occupational Medicine. Des has held a Professorial Chair in Medicine at The University of Auckland since 2000. He is a member of the Liggins Institute and has been Director of Admissions for Medical Programmes from 2003.

In October 2005 Des was appointed as Head of the School of Medicine, becoming in the process the first alumnus to head up one of the five schools the faculty represents.

Through his academic career he has had 218 papers published internationally and has made 36 keynote presentations to international conferences, most in his specialist field of diving and hyperbaric medicine.

Gorman's the naval physician to some sorta prince in Bahrain. He's raking it in.

  • Yep, right again Sparrow.
  • Plenty of posts on this forum from members unsatis dealings w/ Prof Des Gorman. Pop his name up in the search box & hit "go". Pages & pages!!!
  • Good job about the FMS too.
  • Useless information but he also appears to be one of the long lost Waka-Blonde descendants of Ngapuhi.
