*Khan v General Pharmaceutical Council (Scotland)

Medical practitioner – Disciplinary committee. The Supreme Court held in allowing the appeal of the committee of the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPC), that a review committee of the GPC had had no power to direct suspension beyond 12 months of the original suspension so as to reflect a conclusion that the gravity of the respondent's misconduct demanded a longer period of suspension than 12 months which could not have been exceeded in the direction given by the original committee. Further the sanction of removal of the pharmacist from the registrar had been disproportionate.
