Two GPs suspended for 'inappropriately' prescribing opioids online


As above a somewhat predictable result. I even got a letter stating the online service had prescribed 100 DF118 for my 20 year old lady with back pain. Nothing +ve about it as she had given false details all the way along including saying I was her GP who routinely gave her the same for her bad back! The letter fortunately included the prescribers GMC number so it rapidly was forwarded to my Responsible Officer and CQC Result: SFA!
