GOC suspends Birmingham based dispensing optician

The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to suspend Sarah Morris, a dispensing optician based in Birmingham, from its register for twelve months.

A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found her fitness to practise impaired by reason of misconduct. This is in relation to her processing false refund transactions on several occasions.

Ms Morris has until 2 February 2021 to appeal her suspension.
