How to access the online Performers List service for existing Ophthalmic performers

To use the online system, the Contract Holder needs to assign a User Administrator on PCSE Online. Once registered, this User Administrator can then attach the relevant Performers to their store, which generates an account for each Performer so they can then create their own individual log on and password to access the online Performers List system. Learn how to attach your Performer to your practice.

If your Contract Holder has not assigned a User Administrator, please contact PCSE on 0333 014 2884 to set this up.

The Performers List self-service function will enable current performers to confirm or amend their own details (e.g. change of address or status) via the portal as and when required.

Overall, the move from paper-based applications and change notifications to online will create a more simplified, quicker process as:

  • It removes the need to download, complete, scan and email forms
  • Is available 24 hours a day
  • Applicants and performers can see the status of their application or update in real-time
  • Any missing or incorrect information is highlighted so it can be addressed before being submitted
  • Documents can be uploaded directly into PCSE Online
  • Performers can check the accuracy of the information held on them on the Performers List and make amendments quickly and easily

Ophthalmic Practice not yet signed up for PCSE Online

Specsavers, Boots-owned stores, Vision Express, Scrivens, Asda stores, and Optical Express will receive the relevant information  either from their respective head offices or via PCSE directly.
