Making pension contributions

Paying pension contributions to NHSE by BACs

The quickest, easiest and preferred way to pay your contributions is by BACs. Due to security concerns, we cannot publish NHS bank details on our website. If you have previously paid in this way, the bank details have not changed so please continue to use the same details. Practitioners wishing to pay via BACS and require the bank details should contact PCSE. Our contact details can be found here.

Practitioners should enter the following reference details for their payment:

  • SD number – your GP Pensions scheme number: 8 characters
  • LOCUM or SOLO – the form type the payment relates to: 3 characters
  • MONTH – the month the payment relates to: 3 characters
  • YEAR – the year the payment is for: 2 characters

Examples:
LOCUM example = 12345678LOCFEB17
SOLO example = 12345678SOLFEB17

* Note the reference should be no longer than 16 characters long.

Practitioners should then scan and email their completed forms to pcse.gp-pensions@nhs.net stating the form type in the email subject line and providing the payment reference details in the body of the email.

Alternatively Practitioners can write the payment reference details on the form and post to Primary Care Support England, PO Box 350, Darlington, DL1 9QN

NHS England is currently seeking further clarification from the Pensions Agency with regards to the acceptance of emailed forms.  We will provide an update if there is any change to the guidance provided above. In the meantime, we advise that you keep a copy of forms submitted via email.

Paying pension contributions to NHSE by cheque

Alternatively, practitioners wishing to pay by cheque should send their cheques and supporting forms for pension contributions to:

Primary Care Support England, PO Box 350, Darlington, DL1 9QN.

Please make cheques payable to either NHS England or NHS Commissioning Board only. Cheques made out to PCSE cannot be banked by NHSE, and therefore will need to be returned to the payer requesting that they are re-issued correctly i.e. cheque made payable to NHS England or NHS Commissioning Board.
