A doctor who was convicted of possessing illegal drugs is set to face a hearing about her conduct.
Katy McAllister, of Seafield Close in the West End, will face a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) hearing in Manchester next month.
The disgraced medic, 31, was found not guilty of causing the death of her friend Louise McGowan at Voodoo Tattoo in Perth Road in May 2015.
It was alleged by prosecutors that McAllister had supplied Mrs McGowan, 27, with a cocktail of powerful painkillers.
Defence advocate Mark Stewart QC argued at the High Court in Glasgow that there was insufficient evidence against his client and McAllister was acquitted of the charge by Judge Graham Buchanan QC.
However, McAllister pleaded guilty to charges of supplying or offering to supply diazepam and temazepam to other individuals, as well as possessing magic mushrooms and the controlled drug midazolam.
Mr Stewart argued that it was not a “commercial supply operation” or “an operation where drugs have been stolen from health service supplies”.
McAllister was sentenced to a community payback order with 150 hours of unpaid work.
Now, the MPTS — which upholds the standards of the General Medical Council — will hold a four-day hearing into her conduct.
If McAllister is found to have breached guidelines, she could face a number of sanctions including being struck off.
The MPTS said the hearing would consider McAllister’s conviction on three counts of supplying or offering to supply a controlled drug and two of having a controlled drug in her possession.
It added: “The allegation may be amended as the hearing proceeds and when findings of fact are made by the tribunal.”
The hearing is expected to run from November 13 to 17.
McAllister declined to comment when approached by the Tele.
