The online pharmacy Kiwi Drug claims to dispense drugs legally from their online NHS-affiliated doctors, who prescribe drugs online.
Kiwi Drug provides an online doctor service through its UK affiliate, which is registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide prescriptions online.
Prescriptions are dispensed by an NHS pharmacy regulated by the General Pharmaceutical Council.
Kiwi Drug's affiliate's doctors are GMC registered. Most are experienced GPs. They are all trained in providing prescription medicine online. The doctors are individually responsible for the prescriptions they issue. Registered pharmacists are responsible for dispensing.
Assuming the pharmacy's claims are true, is it actually legal for a doctor to give prescriptions based on an online "consultation" in the UK?
