Ms My-Trang Nguyen – Pharmacist – Registration cancelled and prohibition order for professional misconduct and unsatisfactory professional conduct
11 March 2022
The Health Care Complaints Commission prosecuted a complaint against registered pharmacist, Ms My-Trang Nguyen, the sole proprietor of Priceline Pharmacy at Gordon (“Priceline Gordon”), before the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Central elements of the allegations were that in August 2018, Ms Nguyen created a forged document in relation to conditions on her registration and provided this to the Pharmacy Council of NSW. It was further alleged that on two occasions in 2019, Ms Nguyen provided false evidence to the Council in relation to those conditions.
In its decision of 21 February 2022, the Tribunal found the above allegations proven. The Tribunal held this conduct was a failure by Ms Nguyen ‘to maintain the high level of professional competence and ethical conduct expected of a registered pharmacist, in particular a proprietor pharmacist’. The Tribunal cancelled Ms Nguyen’s registration and set a non-review period of 2 years. The Tribunal also made a prohibition order prohibiting Ms Nguyen from supplying or authorising the supply of certain restricted products and from providing pharmaceutical services.
