This depends on the type of change you are applying to make.  If you are changing your practice this will require approval from your NHS England regional team or CCG.

If your change involves a change of practice, status or number of sessions worked, yes.

Once your change has been approved on PCSE Online, you will need to submit a new Estimate of Pensionable Profit form. This should be submitted to PCSE using the online enquiry form.

You will receive an email from PCSE asking you to check PCSE Online to view the changes made to your Performer record.

You can request that the Performers List team investigate this via the online enquiry form. Select ‘Performers List’ as the subject enquiry type and complete the information requested. Please include a description of the issue in the message box when prompted and include your Regulatory Body and Performers List numbers in the communication.

Primary care providers should speak to your NHS England local office to confirm the status of a performer in the absence of them being evident on the Performers List for England website.

The store needs to set up its User Administrators first. These User Administrators can then select the Performers that are relevant to their store.

If you work for Specsavers, Boots, Vision Express, Asda Opticians, Scrivens or Optical Express, your store User Admins may not yet be set up.

You should contact your Head Office to find out more.
