CET Claim 2019

How to claim your CET grant in 2019

Claims for CET undertaken by ophthalmic practitioners between 1 January to 31 December 2018 must be submitted between 1 July 2019 and 31 October 2019 to PCSE at PCSE.Optical@nhs.net. The CET allowance for 2018 is £562.

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

(a) CET he/she has undertaken personally in the year between 1 January to 31 December 2018.

(b) CET undertaken in the year between 1 January to 31 December 2018 by an ophthalmic practitioner on the Ophthalmic Performers List.

Please remember PCSE can only process claims for CET allowance payments if they come from a contractor

and CET claims submitted by email to PCSE must come from the email address that the contractor has

registered with PCSE to access to portal to order supplies of GOS forms.
