Association of Optometrists Policy Director, David Craig, has issued the following information regarding this years CET Grant Claim Form:
The claim form for the CET grant for optometrists in England has been published and is available on the AOP website:
Note the window for making claims runs from 14 July to 14 November. Forms for performers should be sent to the Area Team which manages the performer’s list entry. As in previous years, the grant must be claimed via a contractor.
The AOP suggests that members should retain a copy of their claim form and should confirm receipt with their Area Team – it is not unknown for forms to have gone astray.
Claim forms for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are expected to be published shortly.
The Optical Confederation will be publishing guidance on claiming the grant in the next few days.
