It is a regulatory requirement for dental performers to notify NHS England of any changes to the details held about them on the National Performers List.
PCSE is responsible for processing the following changes to the National Performers List:
- Change of personal details (name and contact details)
- Change of local area team
- Change of practice *
- Withdrawal from the National Performers List
*Change of practice
With regards to practice changes, PCSE does not process employment updates for dental performers; this needs to be managed by the employer (i.e. the dental practice) via Compass.
Whilst it is a regulatory requirement for performers to also notify PCSE of a practice change, there isn’t currently a simple means of recording this type of change on existing systems.
As part of the service transformation programme, dental performers will be able to login to PCSE Online to notify of a change rather than complete an NPL2 or 3 form. When the new service is live, all practice changes can be updated directly on PCSE Online.
NHS England has therefore agreed that dental performers are not required to notify PCSE of a change to practice at this point in time. The requirement will be re-introduced once the new Performers List service has been rolled out.
Reminders will be shared closer to the launch of the new online service.
