Estimate of GP (and non-GP) Providers NHS Pensionable Profits/Pay

This form must be used to provide PCSE with projected pensionable pay so that the monthly contribution deductions for GP’s and Non-Clinical Partners are as accurate as possible. This will reduce outstanding contributions at year end.

Every GP Practice, sPMS Contractor, and ‘classic’ APMS Contractor (that is an Employing Authority) must submit this form to the relevant PCSE team by 1 March every year. It must also be submitted to PCSE there are any changes to practice GPs. It is important to be as accurate as possible when completing Estimates in order to avoid large adjustments at year end.

PCSE can now accept forms without a handwritten signature as long as the contact email address when
submitted is an nhs.net email address. If you do not have an nhs.net email address you will need to
ensure that the form has a handwritten signature.

If documents are submitted without a hand-written signature, and no nhs.net email address is provided
when the documents are sent to PCSE via the online enquiries form, the document(s) will be returned to
the sender for re-submission.

Every year, the form becomes available to download from the NHS Pensions website from November/December.

The form and guidance notes are available to download on the NHS Pensions website here.

Please submit to PCSE no later than 1 March every year.

Forms should be submitted to PCSE via the enquiries form.

Please download the excel form directly from the NHS BSA website, complete it electronically, save it and upload it directly to the online form. As long as you can provide a nhs.net address as a contact email address there is no need to print it off, sign it and scan back in, which often makes the file size much larger.

If you don’t have an nhs.net email address, please upload the excel form without the signature, and upload a separate page with the signature(s) on. The form will allow you to upload up to five documents in one submission.

Forms can also be completed and sent by post to Primary Care Support England, PO Box 350, Darlington, DL1 9QN.

 

Please complete and submit to PCSE no later than 1 March every year. It is also important for practices to submit new Estimate forms to PCSE when practitioners leave and join the practice.

PCSE will use this information to make any necessary adjustments to practice contribution deductions during the following financial year. PCSE will collect contributions based on this information from the practice’s main monthly payment.

Where possible, any adjustments will be deducted or paid in your next practice main monthly payment.

GPs must pension all of their eligible NHS GP income; they cannot ‘pick and mix’. However, GPs who trade as limited company in respect of ad hoc work cannot superannuate this income.
