Pharmacist refuses to issue pill because of religion

10th March 2010

An investigation has been launched after a woman was refused the contraceptive pill because it was against the female pharmacist’s religion to give it to her.

Janine Deeley, 38, was turned away by the chemist at Lloyds pharmacy in Duke Street, Sheffield, when she went to pick up her routine prescription of the medication. She was asked to come back the following day to see a different pharmacist. Lloyds pharmacy has apologised to Ms Deeley and launched an investigation into what happened.
