A GP who unwittingly directed a patient to a questionable compounding pharmacy for semaglutide says it all began with an unsolicited fax sent to her general practice a year ago.

Last week, she told AusDoc that a practice receptionist had picked up the fax and placed it in the tearoom, where she had read it with another GP.
