September 2018 Submit your CET claim before the deadline


CET Claims
Please remember to submit your CET claims as soon as possible. 
To make submissions as easy as possible this year, you should use the online form on the PCSE website to simply upload your 2018 CET claim for payment.
We have already processed more than 3,000 claims which have been sent in via the online form and feedback so far has been positive.

The new process ensures an acknowledgement email is sent as soon as the claim is submitted. The subject of the acknowledgement includes the name of the performer that the CET is for, to help easily identify the claim. When the claim has been processed another email is subsequently sent to confirm it has been dealt with and that the grant will be paid in the next payment run.

The CET claim window remains open until 1 November 2018, however we would encourage contractors to submit their CET claims as early as possible to ensure they can be swiftly processed for payment and not wait until the final deadline.

Further details and FAQs explaining the new process are available on our dedicated CET webpage and the online submission form is available by simply selecting ‘CET Claim’ from the drop down menu on the Contact Us page of the PCSE website.


September 2018 Optometrists: New online form for domiciliary visit notifications

A new, easy-to-use online form is now available on the PCSE website and is the quickest way to enter and submit a pre-visit notification (PVN) of a domiciliary visit to PCSE.
In order to complete the form, you will need to provide the same details currently required in a PVN and the following additional information: 

  • ODS code (also known as TP code) – if you do not know the ODS code for your practice you should contact the Exeter Helpdesk on 0300 3034 034 or E-mail: exeter.helpdesk@nhs.net
  • PCT code (this should be the same code that appears on the associated GOS6 claim)

When all the details have been correctly completed the form will be available to review, save and print as a pdf for future reference before it is submitted.  Please note you are required to keep a copy of all PVNs for post-payment verification purposes.
Once submitted you will then receive an acknowledgment email with a unique case reference number (CRN).  The subject heading of the email will include the post code of where the visit is due to take place to help you easily identify which PVN the case reference number relates to.  
The case reference number should be used in any further correspondence about the PVN.

The new forms will ensure PCSE has all the information needed on a PVN to process the associated GOS 6 claim efficiently.
The online form will also allow for substitutions and amendments to be made.

The new online form is available now on the Enquiry Form on the Contact Us page of the PCSE website.  Simply select ‘Pre-visit Notification’ from the drop down menu.
