A PHARMACIST who groped a teenager while carrying out a blood pressure test has been kicked out of the profession.

Roshan Lal’s victim was “sick with worry and shock” throughout the 15 minute ordeal which happened in a pharmacy consulting room.

Lal, who worked at Pharma Health Care on Canvey, had his registration suspended following a hearing last year.

But a review panel has now banned him permanently claiming he was making limited progress on a sexual misconduct training course.
