This case involved a pharmacist facing fitness to practise investigation by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) for allegations of drink driving.

Kings View Chambers’ early involvement in this case resulted in achieving undertakings for the pharmacist in a case which would otherwise have resulted in a full General Pharmaceutical Council fitness to practise tribunal.

The pharmacist in this case also commented that he had contact with other solicitors and barristers but did not like their approach and found Kings View Chambers clear, helpful and professional throughout saying:

Catherine Stock has been an amazing pillar of support throughout my investigation with the GPhC. From the moment I made contact with Kings Chambers and Catherine allocated as my barrister, I felt a huge wait lifted. I had been in contact with other law firms and spoke to many barristers, but I didn’t like their approach.


Catherine has a calm and professional manner and you can feel that she cares about you and your case. Catherine is timely and clear in her responses. I would recommend Catherine and Kings Chambers for anyone who finds themselves in an investigation with their professional body. 


I cannot thank you enough.
