GOC suspends London based optometrist

The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to suspend Malti Amin, an optometrist based in London, 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 conducting unauthorised sales and refund transactions using her personal credit and debit cards.

Ms Amin has until 27 October 2020 to appeal her suspension.
