Primary Care Network (PCN) Payments  


PCSE Online is now processing Primary Care Network (PCN) payments. The system went live on 3 October 2022 and payments will be made in existing BACS runs. Network Participation Payments followed in November 2022.


How does this work?

  • PCSE Online calculates PCN capitation payments, based on approved reference data.
  • PCSE Online will make payments to the PCN's nominated payee.
  • The nominated payee will then disseminate the funds where appropriate between members within the PCN (this will take place outside of PCSE Online).

PCN payments within PCSE Online will enable:

  • The processing of payments to any nominated payee regardless of organisation type.
  • Accurate and timely payments aligned to the Network Contract DES
  • A reduction in manual processes.
  • A consolidated view of PCN capitation payments via system generated statements.
