Claims for CET undertaken by ophthalmic practitioners between 1 January to 31 December 2016 must be submitted between 1 July 2017 and 31 October 2017 to PCSE at PCSE.Optical@nhs.net.

As a reminder, CET allowance payments are payable to contractors.  A payment can be claimed by a contractor in respect of either:

  1. CET he/she has undertaken personally in the year between 1 January to 31 December 2016.
  2. CET undertaken in the year between 1 January to 31 December 2016 by an ophthalmic practitioner on the Ophthalmic Performers List.

The CET allowance for 2016 is £545.

Please follow the steps below to submit a claim:

  1. Complete the form which can be found via this link or on the Department of Health Website
  2. Sign and date the form in the appropriate place(s)
  3. Scan the signed form and attach to an email
  4. Put ‘2017 CET claim’ in the email subject header
  5. Email to PCSE.Optical@nhs.net

You will receive a case reference number from PCSE once they have received your claim form. Please note you are asked to submit only one claim form per email so that you each form has a unique case reference that can be tracked.

Primary Care Support England
