A POLICE strike force set up to investigate Newcastle&nbsp;immunologist and allergist Dr Jeremy Coleman has been expanded after more than 40 woman contacted police in the hours after his arrest was made public. Strike Force Yatala investigators have been inundated with fresh information about the well-known physician, who was charged on Thursday&nbsp;with seven sexual and indecent assault counts&nbsp;relating to six women, aged between 24 and 55,&nbsp;between 2003 and 2012. But the&nbsp;Newcastle Herald&nbsp;understands that investigations will now reach back to at least the 1980s after dozens of patients made reports about Dr Coleman’s behaviour during consultations after&nbsp;The Herald&nbsp;revealed his&nbsp;arrest. Dr Coleman, 63, has been a popular immunologist and allergist who has been&nbsp;seen by patients suffering from a wide-range of complaints, including women needing hormonal treatment and allergy sufferers. He had&nbsp;already been working under several conditions imposed by the Medical Council of New South Wales, including that he “not consult, treat, interview or examine any female patient in any location, including in his consultation rooms, hospital, nursing home, or on house calls, unless a chaperone is continuously present”. The council said conditions were&nbsp;imposed “for the protection of the health and safety of any person or persons, or because it is satisfied that action is otherwise in the public interest”. The Health Care Complaints Commission is also aware of the allegations. Dr Coleman was granted conditional bail after being charged on Thursday with&nbsp;two counts of sexual assault, four counts of indecent assault, and one count of inciting an act of indecency. The allegations include penetration and groping. Strike Force Yatala, which was set up in November 2014 after several women gave statements to police, was expanded on Friday to collate&nbsp;the massive amount of fresh information and investigate all new claims. It is understood a meeting will be held early next week to determine whether Newcastle City detectives continue as the lead agency or specialist sex crimes squad investigators are brought in to assist. Dr Coleman’s&nbsp;Watt Street premises was raided by Strike Force Yatala investigators earlier this month when they seized medical records, a computer hard drive and DVDs. The Medical Council of New South Wales imposed a list of conditions on Dr Coleman, although a spokesman would not confirm the reasons why or how long the conditions had been in place.
