Contractor/Performer Admin

Primary Care Support England 

Primary Care Support England (PCSE) carries out a number of administrative functions for NHS England ,  including the management of the ophthalmic performers’ lists and payments for ophthalmic services.

Performer lists exist to provide the public, the NHS and the clinical professions with an assurance that opticians in NHS primary care are appropriately qualified, experienced and suitable for this work.

If you are an optician, you must be on the national performer list in order to work in NHS primary care. You can be on one list only; this should be the one where you spend the most time working.

PCSE process the performer list applications. Details of this are on their website that can be accessed here. http://pcse.england.nhs.uk/opticians/

What’s New?

Wed 13 November 19 | All Contractors Portsmouth, SE Hants and Fareham & Gosport CCGs Tuesday 12th November 2019
Following our Letter to Contractors, dated 4th September 2019, we have been contacted by a number of contractors who are concerned that they are still being sent patients from St Mary’s Treatment Centre. These patients have not been seen for their post-operative care, and contractors are being expected to provide this under GOS. As per our letter, we advise contractors not to see such patients under GOS, and to refer these patients back to St Mary’s Treatment Centre. A meeting between Hampshire LOC, the CCG and St Mary’s Treatment Centre will be taking place at the end of this month. We will update all contractors following this meeting at the appropriate time.

Tue 29 October 19 | Online Ophthalmic Payment Service Starts 28 October 2019
Message from PCSE National roll out 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 Kirsty Adlem Ophthalmic Engagement Manager Communications & Engagement Team
