  • 8. ◦ NHS England (Thames Valley Area Team) is the successor organisation to Oxfordshire PCT, Buckinghamshire PCT, Berkshire West PCT and Berkshire East PCT ◦ Manage the quality assurance of General Ophthalmic Services (GOS) contracts ◦ The “subcontact” TVPCA for GOS claims and PPV visits ◦ Responsible for LEHN
  • 9. 1. Procedure for the assurance of general ophthalmic services (GOS) contracts The document highlights the process that NHS England will follow to reduce inappropriate variations in practice and support improvement in the quality of contracted services provided by optometrists. These measures are:  Consideration of a self-assessment checklist which is completed by contractors every three years to demonstrate contract compliance and any quality improvement programme. Where contractors identify non-compliance they will agree an action plan with the AT to rectify the situation. A copy of the checklist is contained in the document  Carrying out practice visits. The document contains a checklist for ATs to use when carrying out visits  Consideration of key performance indicators.
  • 10. 2. Procedure for the approval of applications for general ophthalmic services contracts The document describes the process NHS England shall follow when processing applications for GOS contracts. The procedure contains: • The standard information to be provided within an application NHS England policies and procedures for eye care services www.pcc-cic.org.uk © Primary Care Commissioning 2013 2 • A process for approving premises, equipment, record keeping facilities, staffing arrangements and identifying required standards are not met • The minimum standard for equipment required to undertake additional services • Information about how to tailor contracts when necessary.
  • 11. 3. Procedure for the variation of general ophthalmic services contracts The document details how NHS England shall process requests to vary a general ophthalmic services contract. The procedure focuses on the most common contract variation requests and the approach ATs shall follow: • Partnerships, which includes individual to partnership and vice versa, and death in service of a partner • Director changes in a corporate body • Relocation of premises • 24-hour retirements. A generic variation template is contained within the document, which can be used by ATs for any other variation request.
  • 12. 4. Procedure for the termination of general ophthalmic services contracts The document provides the process that NHS England shall follow when terminating a GOS contract for the following reasons: • Death in service of a contract with an individual • Termination of a contract by a contractor • Insolvency. The document also provides information about checks to be carried out before terminating a contact. It should to be read in conjunction with the procedure for the assurance of general ophthalmic services contracts, which provides examples of termination notices.
  • 13.  The Area Team has decided to implement this requirement in alphabetical order by county. This means that Berkshire Ophthalmic practices will be the first contactors required to submit this checklist. They will be followed by Buckinghamshire in 2014 and Oxfordshire in 2015. This process and timeline has been discussed and agreed with the Local Ophthalmic Committees (LOCs) for Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.  To make this submission you will be asked to visit the Quality in Optometry (QiO) website www.qualityinoptometry.co.uk. This is a national quality assurance tool website used by ophthalmic practices to self-assess their compliance with their contract and to improve the quality of the services they provide. It is recommended that you start to look at this checklist as soon as possible, as even though you do not have to submit your checklist at this time, you should still aim to be compliant with the GOS contract.  Visit selection process Based upon the NHS England policy, visits will be carried out using the following criteria: 1. Where there has been a change of GOC-registered partner or director in the past 12 months 2. Practices where there are concerns about contract delivery e.g. Activity concerns, levels of seriousness of complaints, untoward incidence, performance issues, post payment verification (PPV) or other concerns. 3. A random selection of practices based on 5% of the total number of contracts in the area team.
