Pharmacist advises BBC Radio Berkshire about dodgy diet pills

Carol Trower, Chief Executive of the Berkshire Local Pharmaceutical Committee, was interviewed on BBC Radio Berkshire this week.  A local doctor practising at a private slimming clinic had received a warning from CQC for the way he prescribed phentermine and diethylpropion. Carol talked with presenter Andrew Peach about how these medicines work, their side-effects and the dangers of buying them online, as well as the kind of good advice pharmacists can give about weight management, and also appeared on BBC South lunchtime news.
