The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to suspend Haroon Zubair, a student optometrist based in Bradford, from its register for six months.

A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found his fitness to practise impaired by reason of misconduct. This is in relation to his inappropriate use of a social media platform.

Mr Zubair has until 24 August 2021 to appeal his suspension.
