Patients Rights Advocacy –


This is an open letter to all New Zealand General Practitioners (GP’s) and Gastroenterologist doctors to examine your personal involvement in one of New Zealand’s largest medical fraud malpractices – cholecystectomy surgery – for the treatment of gallstones and gallbladder problems conducted illegally. This fraud has caused on-going harm to patients in a direct breach of the legally enforceable Code of Health and Disability Services Consumers’ Rights.

We believe Doctors have a duty of care to warn patients of the material risks of treatment for laparoscopic cholecystectomy – including informing patients of the risks of a heterogeneous group of diseases and symptoms presenting as side effects that can be transient, persistent, lifelong and chronic.

“If it can be shown that a doctor has failed to provide adequate information and thereby failed to ensure that the patient comprehends, so far as is possible, the factors required to make decisions about medical procedures, such failure could be considered medical misconduct and could be the subject of disciplinary proceedings” The Medical Council of New Zealand

This patient rights advocacy project has taken the following steps to stop patient harm and obtain post-treatment support for cholecystectomy patients:

  • We have published (with supporting evidence) examples of false, misleading and fraudulent patient information documentation used by surgeons to illegally obtain consent through deception. There has been a consistent misrepresentation and deliberately crafted concealment of the side effect risks of a laparoscopic cholecystectomy and a lack of alternative non-surgical treatment options presented to patients. This is fraud by means of false representation and is a criminal offence under the Crimes Act 1961, Section 240. (
  • We have provided evidence that DHBs’ are liable under Section 72 of the Health and Disability Commissioner Act 1994 for failing to prevent the acts, or omissions, of employees (doctors and surgeons) that have breached the Code – Namely consent obtained illegally by deception and blocking post treatment support.
  • We have are simply a revenue-based fantasy.
  • We have provided 1700 patient testimonies, rejected by the HDC, confirming this fraud and highlighting that patients are being harmed by these surgeons. Patient testimonies describe cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment, as well as physical and mental suffering.
  • We have evidence the HDC is acting as an illegal construct and going against their statutory duty by providing protection to medical practitioners above health consumers’ rights.
  • We have published open letters sent to Members of Parliament, medical practitioners, DHB directors and private hospitals identifying and exposing this fraud.
  • Finally, we have offered a $100K reward to debunk evidence that this is one of New Zealand’s largest on-going medical frauds. (See


“It is not only immoral and unethical to inflict patients with a heterogeneous group of diseases without first disclosing the risks of side effects from treatment and obtaining consent accordingly, but it also displaying an illegal intent under Section 201 of the Crimes Act 1961”

Our patient advocacy group intend to contact every cholecystectomy patient in New Zealand. Through various media channels we will expose your involvement in this fraud and highlight acts and omissions in regards to laparoscopic cholecystectomy treatment that have been conducted illegally. Furthermore, we intend to expose the proliferation of misinformation and falsities about the risk of certain side effects, which may significantly impact patients’ quality of life. We vociferously believe that patients’ have been blocked from receiving post-care treatment support and a proper diagnosis, in order to cover-up culpability and maintain the fraud.

We present a question to you: What kind of moral and ethical medical health practitioner, service provider, or administrator, would openly facilitate medical treatment on patients, without telling the truth about the risks of injury or side effects, in order to maintain the deception and prevent post-care treatment support?

This non-commercial fax has been sent in accordance with the Health and Disability Advocacy Code of Practice. Health consumers, in order to receive informed consent and medical support services, must take their own direct action to improve health and disability services, including exposing illegal and immoral practices of medical practitioners.
