New Performers List online service 

All Performers Lists are moving to a new online service in 2019, and can be accessed via PCSE Online. Transformation starts with Ophthalmic practitioners on 30 September. The rest will go live at the end of the year.

The new online service will replace the current paper-based NPL1, NPL2 and NPL3 forms, offering new applicants and existing performers an easy to use process to join the performers list, notify PCSE of any change in circumstances and keep their information up to date.

Our What’s Changing page will keep you up to date with the latest in our transformation programme.

What are Performer Lists?
Any GP, optician 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 Opticians 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.

Find out more at the National Performers List website.
