Obtaining GP prescribing numbers, G referral codes and local codes

When a GP joins a new practice they will need to complete an NPL 2/3 (change to circumstance or status). Details on the performers list change notification process are available here.

PCSE will send the performer a change notification confirmation letter which includes their prescribing number, G referral code, and their local code. 

It is important that GP codes used at previous practices are not used in new practices. This would result in new patient registrations being assigned to the previous practice and the patient’s medical records would also then be sent to there.

Practice's that require these codes for GP's joining their practice should ask the GP for a copy of their change notification confirmation letter.
