The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to erase Joanne Donnelly, a dispensing optician based in Derbyshire, England, from its register.

A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found her fitness to practise impaired by reason of misconduct. This is in relation to working whilst under the influence of alcohol.

Ms Donnelly has until 15 July 2021 to appeal her erasure.
