Primary Care Network (PCN) payments


PCSE Online calculates PCN capitation payments and makes them to the PCN’s nominated payee. The nominated payee then disseminates the funds where appropriate between members within the PCN (this takes place outside of PCSE Online).

PCN payments on PCSE Online enables:

  • the processing of payments to any nominated payee regardless of organisation type
  • accurate and timely payments aligned to the Network Contract DES
  • a reduction in manual processes
  • a consolidated view of PCN capitation payments via system generated statements

PCN user management

The process for adding new PCN users is managed by the PCN organisation. 

The PCN's user administrator can manage access via the User Management tab in PCSE Online. 

If there is no PCN user administrator, the organisation should complete the form below. This form needs to be approved and signed by a member of their ICB, who is listed as an approver on the NHSE AEL (Authorised Email List). Once signed by an approver, please email to PCSE at

How to access PCN Payments

PCN and ICB user administrators for PCN payments are responsible for managing user access within their organisation. This means user administrators will need to add new users, edit or deactivate user access using the user management tab on PCSE Online. 

If an organisation doesn’t have a user administrator they will need to complete the form above.

For more information please see our PCN User Management page.
