With practices now moving to submitting GOS claims online, the current paper GOS forms are only valid for claims up until 31 January 2021. New style paper forms, designed for use if online claims are not possible, will be in operation from 1 February 2021.

Important note: These forms and vouchers are for use for sight tests from 1 February 2021 only, please continue to use current paper forms until 31 January 2021.

When and how can I order the new style paper forms?
Every practice will have received a contingency pack of the new style paper forms.  Please keep these safe, but continue to use current paper forms until 31 January 2021. We will let you know as soon as the new style paper forms are available to order via PCSE Online.
