Sixth pharmacist suspended after BBC investigation

By News team

Another pharmacist accused of illegally supplying medicines following a BBC Inside Out investigation has been suspended from the Register by the General Pharmaceutical Council.

Mohammed El-Hadi-Abdul-Razzak, of Safeer pharmacy, was handed a 12 month interim suspension order at a hearing on 25 April 2013. Last December, the BBC programme broadcast evidence of nine pharmacists supplying morphine, benzodiazepines, sildenafil and amoxicillin without a prescription. In total, six pharmacists have now been suspended by the GPhC following the programme. The investigations into these pharmacists and other pharmacists the programme implicated are ongoing and no fitness-to-practice hearings have yet been scheduled, the GPhC confirmed.
