Two family doctors have been accused of trying to “conceal” from officials “the true levels” of highly addictive sleeping tablets being prescribed to patients by their GP practice.

The General Medical Council (GMC) has said that Dr Paul Flanigan and Dr Gabrielle McKeever handed out private prescriptions to patients between 2011 and 2015 in order that prescribing levels of potentially dangerous drugs would be “artificially reduced” in an official audit process.
