   Taxpayers & Medical Gods.
C/P= The colourful career of society shrink Dr Robert Hampshire appears to be all but over after he was caught sending lewd late-night texts to a client following a day of drinking.

On Friday the psychiatrist lost his appeal to be allowed to continue practising while he waits a full hearing of the matter.

In refusing to lift his suspension, Acting Judge Frank Marks of the Civil and Administrative Tribunal found that Dr Hampshire represented "a risk to the health and safety of the public".

Judge Marks said that, given his prior troubled history with the Medical Council, Dr Hampshire "does not have good prospects of succeeding on his appeal".

Dr Hampshire, 69, was once the poster boy for conspicuous consumption. Back in the 1990s, the high-flying, property-developing psychiatrist and his then-wife Sally were A-listers on the Sydney social scene.

The entertained lavishly at their home, the fabled Altona, an eight-bedroom waterfront mansion in Point Piper which, several owners later, sold for $60 million in 2016.

The intervening years have not been kind to Dr Hampshire. His property empire went bust and he was bankrupted in 2010.

In 1990, Dr Hampshire was prohibited from prescribing drugs of addiction after he was found to be self-administering pethidine.
