GOC erases Staffordshire based student dispensing optician

17 Mar 2020

Back to news listing

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

A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found his fitness to practise impaired by reason of conviction. This is related to his convictions of possession of a bladed article, an offensive weapon and illegal drugs, in addition to causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Mr Kazi has until 19 March 2020 to appeal his erasure, during which time he is suspended from the register under an immediate suspension order.
