Suspended NSW Pharmacist to be sentenced for claiming to be registered

07 Mar 2019

The Local Court of New South Wales today adjourned the sentencing of Mr David Le of Sydney City Pharmacy to 27 March 2019 following charges laid by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

This follows Mr Le’s plea of guilty on 31 January 2019 to charges that while suspended, he claimed to be a registered pharmacist in contravention of the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law.

On 7 August 2017, the Pharmacy Council of New South Wales suspended Mr Le’s registration after it determined that a suspension was appropriate for the protection of the health or safety of the public or was otherwise in the public interest.

Anyone with concerns about whether an individual holds registration with a national health profession board can check the Register of practitioners maintained by AHPRA online (www.ahpra.gov.au) or contact AHPRA on 1300 419 495.
