RPS speak to Channel 5 Nailing the Fraudsters about counterfeit medicines

Channel 5’s programme Undercover: Nailing the Fraudsters looks at a different aspect of fraud each week. 

Professor Jayne Lawrence was interviewed this week about tablets claiming to be Valium, obtained without a prescription by the programme, which turned out to have 20% more of the active ingredient than expected.

Jayne stressed that the drugs tested in the lab at King's College London were fake, and that people should not buy prescription medicines from the internet because of the high level of potential harm to health.
