GOC suspends Leicester based optometrist from register

The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to suspend Herkiran Riyait, an optometrist based in Leicester, 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 failing to engage with activity as directed by the GOC Investigation Committee.

Ms Riyait has until 3 March 2024 to appeal against her suspension.
