Focus on Domiciliary

A pre-visit notification (PVN) must be submitted for a domiciliary visit in line with regulations. You can only claim a domiciliary fee in respect of a patient who is eligible for a GOS sight test, if they are unable to leave home unaccompanied for reasons of physical or mental illness.

Please submit PVNs via PCSE Online or eGOS to receive instant confirmation of the PVN reference number that needs to be included on the GOS 6 claims you complete for the visit. If you are unable to submit PVNs electronically, you will need to complete this standard PVN template and send it from a secure nhs.net email account to pcse.domnotifications@nhs.net. Please do not submit any GOS 6 claims completed for a domiciliary visit until you have received a PVN reference as this is a mandatory field that needs to be included on the claim form.
