Statement on the Honey Rose High Court case

We acknowledge the judgement of the High Court to quash the decisions of our Fitness to Practise Committee (FTPC) regarding the case of optometrist Honey Rose. The matter has been remitted back to the GOC for a re-hearing in respect of impairment and sanction.   

We will carefully consider the judgement and as a new FTPC hearing will be held, we cannot comment further at this stage.

The appeal hearing at the High Court was brought about by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) and took place on Thursday 7 October.
