Sending GMS3 forms (temporary resident forms)

Currently, GMS3 forms can be scanned and uploaded to the records section of the portal by selecting ‘GMS3 Forms’ on the screen header. The upload facility is on the left hand side of the page.  Please ensure all sides of the form are scanned, save the image as a pdf and upload each patient as a separate file.

Alternatively, you can now request a label for GMS3 forms through the records section of the portal and send the forms in shipping bags. To order a label please:

  1. Login to the portal
  2. Click ‘Records’ on the menu bar and then click ‘GMS3 forms’.
  3. On the right hand side, there will be a box called ‘CitySprint collection’.
  4. Select how many labels you would like by using the plus and minus buttons (just one label is needed per shipping bag but you can put multiple GMS3 forms into one bag).
  5. Click the ‘Request tracking label(s)’ button.

The label(s) will then be delivered to you on your next CitySprint visit.

Currently, scanned GMS3 forms will be emailed to the main contact (i.e. the email address used to register a practice on the PCSE Portal) or the nominated Practice Records Administrator we hold at the receiving practice.  If you’d like these forms to be emailed to a different email address, please let us know by emailing:  pcse.enquiries@nhs.net and put ‘GMS3’ in the email subject line.  Please note, we can only forward GMS3 forms to .nhs.net email addresses.

I am trying to scan my GMS3 form on to the Portal but it isn’t working?

If you are struggling to scan your GMS3 form to the portal, you could be experiencing connectivity issues. Please check a website such as bbc.co.uk to test your internet connection. If you are still experiencing issues, you can request a transit label via the portal and send your forms in a shipping bag with the label attached via CItySprint. To order a tracking label follow these steps:

  1. Log onto the portal and go to the Records section
  2. Select GMS3 forms
  3. In the CitySprint collection box, select the number of labels you require and click Request

The label(s) will arrive with your next CitySprint collection / delivery

A patient told us they went to another GP as a temporary patient, but we haven’t received their GMS3 form.

Please contact us to assist you with this.

We have received a GMS3 form incorrectly (for someone who isn't a patient of ours / one of our patients who hasn’t been to another GP)

Please contact us to assist you with this.

I haven’t received the labels I requested to send my GMS3 forms

It is likely that these will be delivered in your next scheduled delivery day which can be view on the homepage of the portal. If they are not delivered on your next scheduled delivery date, then please contact us to investigate this further.
