GOC erases Manchester based student dispensing optician

28 Jan 2020

Back to news listing

The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to erase Sanna Aslam, a student dispensing optician based in Manchester, from its register. She will now be unable to undertake training as a student dispensing optician in the UK.

A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found her fitness to practise impaired by reason of misconduct. This related to her dishonestly obtaining a number of free trial daily contact lenses for someone she knew.

Ms Aslam has until 20 February 2020 to appeal her erasure.
