A redacted version of the report which clears the health minister of a bullying allegation has been published.

Chief Minister Alfred Cannan initially said the findings would be 'unintelligible' if released, but today it was made public.

The investigation came after the Health Services Consultative Committee, a panel that scrutinises the Island's health services, claimed Lawrie Hooper had subjected its members to 'an hour-long rant' during a meeting.

While the report dismisses the complaints, it does state the minister was able to and should have defused the tension at the meeting.

We caught up with Mr Hooper to get his thoughts on the findings.
