A General Optical Council (GOC) fitness to practise committee will hear the case of an optometrist whose manslaughter conviction was quashed by the Court of Appeal.

The hearing of optometrist Honey Rose is scheduled to begin on 20 July and end on 21 August.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the hearing will take place using video-conferencing facilities.

The hearing will examine the care provided by Ms Rose during routine sight tests on two patients and determine whether Ms Rose’s fitness to practise is impaired.

Responding to the listing of the hearing, a spokesperson for the AOP said: “We understand that member and media interest in the fitness to practise hearing will be high. However, we cannot provide any further information on this case since we are representing the registrant, Ms Rose.”

OT will be covering the hearing as it unfolds.
