General Ophthalmic Services (GOS)


The GOS Sight Test Protocol was agreed with NHS Leeds in December 2008. This defines a set number of procedures that can be provided as part of a GOS Sight Test. Procedures that lie outside of the agreed protocol may be provided privately.


Contractors can check their GOS Contract Compliance by using the Quality in Optometry checklists.


Enhanced 'community' service contracts in Leeds also allow practitioners to offer Direct Referral with Choice for Cataract referrals and  IOP (GAT) Refinement as a NHS service.
