Mr Andrew Peter Kaye – Pharmacist – Registration cancelled for Unsatisfactory Professional Conduct and Professional Misconduct

25 July 2022

The Health Care Complaints Commission prosecuted a complaint against pharmacist Mr Andrew Peter Kaye before the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Mr Kaye was the owner and operator of five pharmacies, including Pharmacy Nutrition Warehouses at Toongabbie and Quakers Hill.

The allegations included that, between 4 August 2018 and 2 October 2020, Mr Kaye:

  • Was convicted of criminal offences (including larceny) and failed to notify the National Board in writing within 7 days of being charged with a criminal offence
  • Conducted a pharmacy business at Toongabbie without required approval.
  • Did not have a pharmacist in charge to personally supervise at the Quakers Hill pharmacy.
  • Provided false and/or misleading information to regulatory authorities

On 25 February 2022, the Tribunal found the complaints proven and that Mr Kaye was guilty of professional misconduct and unsatisfactory professional conduct. 

In July 2022, the Tribunal cancelled Mr Kaye’s registration with a non-review period of 12 months.
