HK v General Pharmaceutical Council

Pharmacist – Misconduct – Appropriate sanction. Court of Session: In a statutory appeal by a pharmacist, who was convicted of domestic violence offences, against a decision to remove his name from the Register of Pharmacists rather than impose some lesser sanction, the court held that it was likely that the General Pharmaceutical Council's Fitness to Practise Committee did not consider the possibility of suspension for 12 months with an indication that that should be extended for a longer period, and on that basis the committee's decision as to sanction was flawed.
