GOC suspends Huddersfield based optometrist

The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to suspend Husnal Murtza, an optometrist based in Huddersfield, 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 inappropriately and dishonestly presenting incorrect records as evidence during his assessment whilst he was training as a student optometrist.

Mr Murtza had until 17 September 2020 to appeal his suspension.
