“He is not a predator”: Kennett says community suffers with departure of Doyle
Former Premier and long-time former Chair of Beyond Blue Jeff Kennett says Robert Doyle has been treated “terribly” and the community has lost a great administrator particularly with his departure from Melbourne Health.
“I do feel he has been terribly treated,” Jeff told Neil Mitchell.
“Please don’t get me wrong, I do not support inappropriate workplace behaviour in any shape or form.
“I say this having known Robert for perhaps 40 years, he is not a predator.”

“We as a community have lost a very good administrator,” he said.
“Jill Hennessy, the Minister for Health, for whom I’ve always had high regard, I was appalled the other day when she said based on one complaint from the hospital system that she was going to set up an independent inquiry of Robert’s 10-years of running Melbourne Health.
“This was a political witch hunt from her and I’m very disappointed in her personally.”
