CORRECTION AND APOLOGY:

CORRECTION AND APOLOGY FROM KEN MCALPINE TO SARAH LAURIE


I am a consultant Special Advisor to Vestas Australian Wind Technology Pty Ltd.
On 19 March 2014, I uploaded the following allegations on Twitter concerning Sarah Laurie:
NOT DROWNING, RANTING: Deregistered Dr Sarah Laurie doesnt like the
medicine dished up by @ama_media: waubrafoundaton.org.au/resources/open
At the time that I uploaded the Tweet, I was employed by Vestas Australian Wind Technology
Pty Ltd.
The thrust of my allegations is that Sarah Laurie had given cause to the Medical Board of
Australia to deregister her as a medical practitioner, on account of unprofessional conduct
and that Sarah Laurie is not entitled to use the title Dr.
These allegations were made without foundation and are entirely false.
Sarah Laurie is not deregistered and has never been sanctioned by the Medical Board of
Australia. I understand that Sarah Laurie allowed her registration as a medical practitioner to
lapse for personal reasons; and, accordingly, does not currently practice as such. By reason
of her academic qualifications, Sarah Laurie is entitled to use the title Dr.
I sincerely apologise to Sarah Laurie for the harm, embarrassment and distress caused by my
allegations, which I unreservedly retract.

Ken McAlpine
