Improvements to eOphthalmic web forms

We are keen to make our eOphthalmic services as efficient and user friendly as possible.

Recently we've been gathering feedback from our users to make a range of changes to help improve the services.

Improvements to general navigation

  • The log out button can now also be used as shortcut to change user.
  • The practice button has been changed.

Improvements to the 'view claims' screen

  • An extra column has been added to the 'review claims' screen to show the amount claimed.
  • An extra column has been added to the 'review claims' screen to show the date of examination.
  • You can now sort the 'review claims' screen in alphabetical order.
  • You can now sort the 'review claims' screen chronologically by date of examination and by date created.
  • The review claims screen now retains any filters you apply for the duration of your session.

Improvements to General Ophthalmic Services 1 (GOS1)

  • Boxes have been added around Primary and Supplementary Patient Declarations.
  • Dom visits: All items are now a box at bottom right of the form.
  • Patient aged: The label has been changed to 'Aged 60 or Over'.
  • The comments box for early retests has been removed - the box was now considered to be redundant.
  • There is now an auto sum of amounts from treatments claimed.

Improvements to General Ophthalmic Services 3 (GOS3) and General Ophthalmic Services 4 (GOS4)

We've also introduced new functionality to support the regulatory changes introduced on 1 October 2018.
