GOC erases Liverpool based optometrist
The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to erase Rajendra Chopra, an optometrist based in Liverpool, from its register with immediate effect.
A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found his fitness to practise impaired by reason of misconduct. This is in relation to his failure to carry out an adequate sight test and make an appropriate referral, and his actions were inappropriate, misleading and dishonest.
Mr Chopra has until 29 December 2020 to appeal his suspension.
