GOC suspends Morecambe based optometrist from register

The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to suspend Michael Moon, an optometrist based in Morecambe, from its register for six months.  

A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found his fitness to practise impaired by reason of misconduct. This is in relation to failing to conduct appropriate eye examinations, amending patient records, and behaving inappropriately towards a patient. The Committee found these actions to be dishonest.   

Mr Moon has until 28 March 2024 to appeal against his suspension.
