GOC suspends Bradford based optometrist from register

The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to suspend Carla Mahon, an optometrist based in Bradford, England, from its register for three months.

A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found the registrant’s fitness to practise to be impaired on the grounds of public interest due to failing to declare her drink driving offences to the GOC.

Ms Mahon has until 22 August 2023 to appeal against her suspension.
