Domiciliary and GOS 4 Approval
Please note that, with immediate effect, all pre-notifications for the provision of GOS Additional Services (doc attached) or pre-approval for a GOS4 spectacle repair for adult patients are to be sent as following:
By fax: 0113 277 6912; or
By post to: Ophthalmic Services, Primary Care Support England, PO Box 350, Darlington DL1 9QN; or
By email: email@example.com (only if the sender has got an nhs.net account, due to patient identifiable data). Please mark the heading either GOS Additional Services - Pre Notification or GOS4 Adult Repair - Pre Approval.
Please note that those who would like to apply for an nhs.net account can fill in the following application form: http://systems.hscic.gov.uk/nhsmail/using/podappform-may16.doc
Please note that evidence of completion of the information governance toolkit is to be submitted with the application.
Please note that it is planned to simplify the pre-notification procedure, which would require a change in the GOS Additional Services' contract.
