GOS Claims Moving Online

26 July 2020

PCSE and NHS England have launched a new online system for submitting GOS claims. This was first launched in October 2019 and the new system is designed to replace wastage of paper forms, create easier submission of claims and improving cashflow for practices.

Current paper GOS forms will cease on the 30th September 2020 to encourage practices to move GOS claims online. If online claims are not possible then alternative new style forms will be in operation from the 1st October 2020.

For further information regarding this, please read the letter below from PCSE which includes all of the required information to move GOS online and their contact details to speak to directly.
