A NSW haematologist accused of giving inappropriate doses of chemotherapy drugs to his patients for as long as 13 years will be allowed to continue practising oncology upon his return to work.
The Health Department on Thursday said it had wrapped up an investigation into Dr Kiran Phadke, who was based at St George and Sutherland Hospitals.
Former NSW health minister Jillian Skinner last year said Dr Phadke had given inappropriate doses of chemotherapy drugs to his patients and at least three people were affected, including two who died.
The alleged mistreatment was discovered after a nurse reported his under-dosing to authorities in April 2016, following revelations of a developing scandal at St Vincent's Hospital.
Ms Skinner ordered a review of all case files of public hospital cancer patients who had been treated over the past five years.
South Eastern Sydney Local Health District chief executive Gerry Marr said Dr Phadke had agreed not to practice haematology on his return to work.
"Given there were no adverse findings in his oncology practice, Dr Phadke's suspension with respect to oncology will be lifted with immediate effect," Mr Marr said in a statement.
"He will return to the workplace subject to the conditions set out by the NSW Medical Council regarding the requirement of supervision."
For the first two months following his return to work, Dr Phadke will need to comply with conditions set by the state's Medical Council.
"This will allow Dr Phadke to request the restoration of his privileges in his medical oncology practice," Mr Marr said.
