Save our local Nottingham chemist sign now

This petition is aimed at getting the The Statutory Committee of The Royal Pharmaceutical Society Of Great Britain to reconsider their ruling in the case of Mr D Parmar of Parmar Chemist, Woodborough Road, St Anns, Nottingham who they struck off the register in June 2006.

For twenty two years, six days a week, ten hours a day, Mr Parmar has tirelessly served the community of St Anns, Nottingham as their local chemist.

This level of commitment, sacrifice and dedication to the needs of others before his own shows the kind of man Mr Parmar is.

It also shows why there is such a strong feeling of loyalty and an overriding disbelief amongst the local community that such a decision can be made without any consultation amongst the community he serves, or with any understanding of the considerable negative impact on the health and welfare of the local community such a decision will inevitably create.

Mr Parmar in addition to his duties as a pharmacist is actively involved in the community trough his work with local GP's and The Pharmacy First Scheme run by Nottingham City Primary Care Trust.
He also work closely with the John Storer clinic in Nottingham providing invaluable support to those with substance misuse issues

Mr Parmar serves all sectors of the local St Anns community in Nottingham. This is all the more commendable given the fact that St Anns is one of the poorest areas in Nottingham and like all poor areas is particularly prone to high levels of unemployment,crime,poverty and attendant health issues.

Last year, Mr Parmar was subject to a mid-morning violent attack and was held at knifepoint. Typically, thinking more about his customers than himself, he was back at work the next day.

Yes, Mr Parmar made an error of judgement in providing over the counter laxatives to an under-weight customer and he deeply regrets his mistake. He accepted both his responsibility for this error and the subsequent fine.

This event took place three years ago and for these three years Mr Parmer carried on serving the community in his role as the local pharmacist until events took another turn.

In addition to this fine from three years ago, The Statutory Committee decided to punish him further and have now struck him off for misconduct.

No one questions that Mr Parmar made a mistake, Mr Parmar himself above all. What we do question is the wisdom of a decision that destroys 22 years of hard work and the business he has built for himself and his family; a decision which leaves the community without an experienced pharmacist
and is of no benefit whatsoever to the people who rely on Mr Parmar to meet their health needs.

At the moment, this is a story with no winners and many losers.

This story can however have a different outcome, all it takes is enough people to sign this petition so an appeal can be launched and a potential tragedy averted.

If you believe that if enough people speak out, change can occur, then please sign this petition.

    if the pharmacist made the mistake and acknoledges this, surely there is a different outcome that allows an otherwise seemingly good person to continue to practice rather than be struck off?

    It appears as if punitive punishment for simply making a 'mistake' is all the rage at the moment. This man if I understand things right, did give a lady laxatives by mistake some few years ago. He has been disciplined for this at the time, and fined to wh

    this is a very extreme punishment, offering no space for mitigation or circumstances. This does not benefit anyone.
