Changes in Scottish benefit payments and procedure

Optical patient benefits increase by 1.68% in Scotland

GOS(3) vouchers in Scotland will increase by 1.68% from 1 April 2024

In addition to the increase on claims for sight tests carried out on or after April 1st 2024 practices must submit such claims within 3 months of the sight test date. This is a reduced period from the current 6 months formerly in operation.

Because running two seperate dates is not possible practices are advised to submit all currently held forms now.
