GOC suspends Hounslow based optometrist from register
The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to suspend Karina Gahir, an optometrist based in Hounslow, from its register for three months.
A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found her fitness to practise impaired by reason of misconduct. This is in relation to the unauthorised cancellation of patients’ appointments and cancelling appointments with another employee’s expired PIN.
Ms Gahir has until 8 September 2023 to appeal against her suspension.
