National Go Live - Starts TODAY

 

I’m pleased to tell you that the national roll out of the online Ophthalmic Payment service starts today. The team made the final technical preparations over the weekend and the service has now successfully gone live.

 

This means that all users of the PCSE Online service can now submit GOS 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 forms online.

 

The full service, which launched today, has also incorporated feedback from our Early Adopter users, to deliver even better functionality. This includes the auto population of claim values in GOS3 vouchers based on prescription entered, which will greatly improve the accuracy of claims. 

 

We will also be introducing some additional enhancements over the coming weeks, as a result of early adopter feedback including:

  • extending the time out on the signature capture on GOS claims
  • allowing a Performer to create a GOS3 once they have signed the declaration on a GOS1, which improves the workflow as they don’t need to wait until the GOS 1 has been submitted.

We expect to have these upgrades deployed by mid-November.

 

Updated User Guides will also be available for all GOS forms soon. These will include step by step instructions on submitting GOS4s, PVNs and GOS6s, and updated information on GOS1, GOS3 and GOS5. You can find out more via our website - https://pcse.england.nhs.uk/services/ophthalmic-payments/.

 

If you have any questions, please do get in touch with the team via pcse.optomengagement@nhs.net.

 

Best wishes
