New guidance to ensure compliance with the NHS standard contract

The Quality in Optometry (QiO) website has been comprehensively revised to provide guidance and help to comply with the NHS Standard Contract 2014/15.

This will prove an invaluable resource for everyone providing community services by providing the help and advice needed for compliance with the NHS standard contract.

There are three new checklists depending on specific contracting arrangements: (a) for LOC companies, (b) for LOC company subcontractors, and (c) for practices contracting directly with CCGs.

This does not affect the GOS section of QiO which is unchanged.
