The Department of Health and Social Care have confirmed that patient signatures on GOS claims became mandatory again from 1 September 2021, so COVID 19 can no longer be used in place of a patient signature for sight tests or spectacle collections that have taken place from this date onwards.
How to move to online claims
- If you are part of large chain, please contact your head office to understand their rollout plans
- If you use a PMS system, please speak to your provider directly to understand how to switch to online submissions. If your PMS provider is not yet ready, you can use PCSE Online free of charge in the interim
- If you do not use a PMS, then you can use PCSE Online. To get set up simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
