A hearing has taken place at the High Court to determine whether the General Optical Council’s (GOC) decision to suspend optometrist Honey Rose from practice for nine months was sufficient to protect the public.

The hearing was brought about by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, and took place on Thursday 7 October.

The GOC’s decision, taken on 12 November 2020, saw Ms Rose suspended from practice for nine months.

A decision is expected later in October.
