NHS Grampian 'acted unlawfully' over pharmacy dispensing rights

NHS Grampian acted unlawfully over pharmacy dispensing rights in rural Aberdeenshire, it had been ruled.

The owners of Tarves community pharmacy - set up to serve the villages of Tarves, Methlick and Pitmedden - had sought a judicial review.

It was over the decision to allow the Haddo Medical Group - a GP practice - to continue to dispense to patients from Pitmedden and Methlick.

NHS Grampian said it was studying the Court of Session ruling.

Lord Doherty said the review and decision-making processes were conducted in a manner which was procedurally unfair.
