The Professional Standards Authority (PSA) for Health and Social Care has been successful in its appeal against the GOC Fitness to Practise Committee’s (FTPC) November 2020 decision in the case of optometrist Honey Rose. 

The success of the PSA’s appeal means that the FTPC's earlier determination on impairment of Fitness to Practise and on sanction is quashed.

The matter has now been remitted to a differently constituted FTPC for a fresh determination on these issues

Honey Rose is represented by the AOP.
