GOC suspends Portland based optometrist from register
The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to suspend Helen Lampka, an optometrist based in Portland, 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 assess and/or accurately record clinical information and failing to refer patients for further examinations.
Ms Lampka has until 20 April 2023 to appeal against her suspension.
