A doctor who performed a discredited therapy on mentally ill patients at a Sydney hospital has been granted a retrial after a judge was found to have made errors when she dismissed a defamation case against a high-profile journalist and book publisher.

Steve Cannane's book, Fair Game: The Untold Story of Scientology, included a chapter that focused on the religion's role in exposing the notorious Chelmsford Hospital deep sleep therapy (DST) scandal in the 1960s and '70s.

The book, published by Harper Collins, mentioned the late John Herron, a psychiatrist who worked at Chelmsford and was deregistered as a doctor in the late 1990s.
