Practice mergers and closures

The banking declaration form should be sent to PCSE with the practice merger/closure form via the online enquiries form (selecting Practice mergers and closure notifications as the subject enquiry type) or by email to pcse.practicechanges@nhs.net .

The form will be passed onto the GP Payments team to action. The GP Payments team will check that all partners in the practice have signed the declaration, complete a P2P form and send this onto the NHS England Regional Local Team to approve. Once approved it will then be sent onto NHS Shared Business Services for the banking details to be updated.

If you have a query regarding banking changes then these must be submitted via the online form. Select GP Payments as the subject enquiry type.

The full mergers and closures process and all associated forms can be accessed here.

The new estimate of profit for the practice should be sent to PCSE with the practice merger closure form via the online enquiries form (selecting Practice mergers and closure notifications as the subject enquiry type) or by email to pcse.practicechanges@nhs.net .

Any subsequent changes following the merger should be sent directly to the GP Payments and Pensions team via the online enquiries form (Select GP Payments or GP Pensions as the subject enquiry type).

Once the new estimate of profit is received and all actions for the merger have completed, the GP Payments team will update the estimates for the GP’s to ensure that the correct contributions are taken from the practice each month.

PCSE will seek instruction from the NHS England Regional Local office or Delegated CCG as to whether or not drugs payments due prior to the merger are to be transferred to the merged practice or whether other arrangements are being made for the closed practice.
