FODO Ireland member update - Cyberattack: primary eye care

Further to our 10 June update

  • PCRS has now extended the June claims window until midnight 22 June
  • The PCSRS Optical Unit is reporting full access to its systems
  • the next payment run is planned for late June. 

However, local CHO systems are still experiencing challenges which may be affecting authorisations.  If members

  • have a specific urgent case and cannot contact or get approval from a CHO, or
  • need assistance but cannot contact local approvers

please contact the PCRS Optical Unit on 01 8647150 or email [email protected] direct. PCRS will be able to assist with clinically urgent matters via local CHOs.

Members can also continue to contact us directly by email at [email protected] for support or to share intelligence that might help restore access to primary eye care services fully.
