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.

August 2020 Update

The National Health Service (Performers Lists) (England) (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 (Coronavirus Regulations) legislation exempts GP Registrars (GPRs) from the requirement to be included in the Medical Performers List when performing primary medical services whilst it remains in place. This exemption arises from the basis that all GPRs are employed by a Lead Employer that is a Designated Body and that their Responsible Officer is the HEE Dean. Should the Coronavirus Regulations be repealed before any amendment to the England Performers Lists Regulations has been enacted, GPRs will need to be included in the List and further instruction will be provided at that time. 

If you have any questions, please get in touch with your local Health Education England (HEE) point of contact.
