Ansari v General Pharmaceutical Council  All ER (D) 126 (Apr)

The General Pharmaceutical Council's Fitness to Practice Committee had been entitled to determine that the appropriate sanction to be imposed on the Appellant was erasure from the pharmaceutical register.
25 April 2012
Sales J (judgment delivered extempore)
(1) The Appellant challenged the decision of a General Pharmaceutical Council's Fitness to Practice Committee to remove his name from the register of pharmacists on the basis that his fitness to practice was impaired. The Appellant had failed to declare his convictions for driving offences, including one for drink driving, when registering. The committee had concluded that the failure to declare these convictions had been done untruthfully, and the Appellant would have known that he was acting dishonestly. The committee found that the Appellant's fitness to practice had therefore been impaired and his name should be removed from the register.
