An appeal by an optometrist who was convicted of gross negligence manslaughter has been heard by the Court of Appeal. 

Optometrist Honey Rose received a two-year suspended sentence in August last year after the death of her patient Vincent Barker from a build up of fluid on the brain.

Five months before Vincent’s death, Ms Rose performed an eye examination on the eight-year-old. 

Ms Rose’s case was heard at the Court of Appeal Criminal Division in London on Tuesday (May 13). 

OT understands the Court’s judgement will be handed down over the coming weeks.
