Updates to the GOS contract for England reflects ICB changes 

Updates to the GOS contract for England reflects ICB changes 

NHS England has updated the mandatory and additional General Ophthalmic Services (GOS) model contracts to reflect the fact that ICBs, not NHS England, now hold GOS contracts.

It also published the variation notices contractors will be asked to sign to effect the changes in their contracts.

As the notices of variation clarify, an important safeguard for contractors is that ‘For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this notice shall affect accrued rights or liabilities up to the date of the variation’.

This means, for example, that GOS claims submitted when NHS England held the contracts will still be paid under the new arrangements.
