Disappointing GOS fee announced by the government

13 Aug 2015

The Government has announced today that it will impose a one per cent increase in fees for services provided under the General Ophthalmic Services (GOS) contract. This offer had been rejected by the Optometrist Fees Negotiating Committee (OFNC) - the negotiating body for the optical sector. 

Mike George, Chair of the OFNC and AOP Councillor, said: “We are deeply disappointed that this fee has been imposed upon the sector, without agreement or any apparent regard to the evidence submitted.”
