Report  Web desk : People should be wary of buying medications on the internet after an investigation found "widespread failings" at some online providers, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has said. The watchdog inspected 11 internet prescription services in England, finding some "potentially presenting a significant risk to patients". The regulator said while some providers were well-run, others "cut corners". The CQC says it will visit providers and shut any putting patients at risk. (01)
