GOC suspends Bradford based optometrist

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

A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found his fitness to practise impaired by reason of misconduct. This is in relation to failing to carry out adequate sight tests and keep adequate records.

Mr Nazir has until 15 October 2020 to appeal his suspension.
