22 May 2020

Back to news listing

The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to suspend Jagdip Dhariwal, an optometrist based in Hampshire, 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 failing to declare his conviction of indecent exposure to the GOC over the course of several years.

Mr Dhariwal has until 26 May 2020 to appeal his suspension.
