Description:
A Sydney-based (Australian) general practitioner (“GP”) is facing charges for prescribing ivermectin to treat covid. A dubious claim was made to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (“AHPRA”) about the GP. When the GP investigated who had made the complaint, it appears as if AHPRA had made the complaint themselves under the name “John Smith.” AHPRA had obtained the prescription information that formed the basis of the dubious complaint, as well as other prescriptions, directly from the pharmacy where the GP had left the prescriptions to be fulfilled. These prescriptions were made out before the Therapeutic Goods Administration (“TGA”) banned the use of ivermectin to treat covid, as announced on 10 September 2021.
