Update: GP Payments and Pensions System launch date

Update on the launch date of the new online system for GP Payments and Pensions administration.  

As you know, the new system has been designed to improve the speed, visibility and tracking of the GP payments and pensions services. It is also a required part of the decommissioning project of National Health Application and Infrastructure Service (NHAIS), which acts as the current data feed for Open Exeter.  

As such, this is a major undertaking which involves multiple organisations and data sets, and is important to get right.  

The new system has now been built and extensive user acceptance testing, security testing, data migration testing and all functional tests have been completed successfully,  

The final test before launching the new system was to run a simulation to provide assurances that the system is robust and will provide a positive experience for users. We have identified some areas for improvement that can be made at this stage before we launch the new service.   

We were initially working towards having the system ready for the end of September but the decision to extend the testing time means that this date will now move. 

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved in the project so far. We will keep you updated on the revised launch date and will continue to work with you to ensure you have everything you need to start using the new service.
