All existing payment arrangements will be migrated to PCSE Online.

Commissioners are now responsible for this and they must complete these 8 days before the contractual payment date. You can make adjustments to payment schedules using a contract variation spreadsheet, uploading this directly to PCSE Online rather than emailing to PCSE.

Once submitted, adjustments will be included in the practice’s next payment run.


At the beginning of a financial year you will be able to set APMS/PMS baselines through PCSE Online. You will also be able to store practice information for annual reviews and submissions, view the payment history for a practice and use the previous year’s figures to set a new practice baseline.

Please note: For the current financial year, you cannot use this service  as we are unable to migrate data, due to the fact the data was previously just set up as adjustments in NHAIS. This has been agreed with NHSE. 


PCSE Online can be used to search for a practice in your area and view their Quality and Outcomes Framework aspirational and achievement figures. Your QOF adjustments will be processed as CQRS adjustments, and not processed through PCSE Online, but you will still see these entries on you PCSE Online statement.

There is no change to how QOF payments are processed, but the ability to view the information will now be in PCSE Online.

The cut-off time for the submission of Contract Variations on PCSE Online for approval is by midnight. Please note that this is in relation and applies to the contractual payment date and therefore would need to be submitted 8 working days before this date.


A user administrator is need to create, amend and deactivate PCSE Online accounts for other users within your organisation. If your commissioner has no user administrator, please follow the process below:
