Please note, throughout the changing situation caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, we continue to work with NHS England to prioritise services so that we can make sure they run smoothly, avoiding disruption to front line Primary Care.

These essential services are processing applications to join the performers list and ensuring that GPs are correctly registered on the Performers List and able to provide services to the NHS. Other services may take longer during this time.


Performers Lists for England

We are responsible for administering the National Performer Lists on behalf of NHS England, to include entry and status changes to performers lists on behalf of NHS England:

  • Applications to join the performers list
  • Change of local office
  • Changes in status
  • Changes of personal details

All Performer List processes are now processed via PCSE Online. See the Quick Links below on how to access the service.

About Performer Lists

Any GP, optometrist or dentist offering primary care in an NHS setting is required to be registered on the National Performers List. There are three performers lists operated by NHS England – one for each profession.

The lists provide an extra layer of reassurance for the public that GPs, Dentists and Optometrists practicing in the NHS are suitably qualified, have up to date training, have appropriate English language skills and have passed other relevant checks such as with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and the NHS Litigation Authority.

We are responsible for administering the three performer lists, to include entry and status changes to performers lists on behalf of NHS England. The decision to admit or decline an applicant to the National Performers Lists is the responsibility of NHS England.
