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.

New Performers

If you are a optometrist wanting to provide eye care services for the NHS in England, you need apply to join the Ophthalmic Performer List for England.

This includes pre-reg opticians, ophthalmic practitioners from the rest of the UK who are moving to England to practice and opticians from abroad. Inclusion on any other Performer List is not transferable and a new application is necessary.

Existing Performers

If you are already on the Performers List, you can make changes to your record using PCSE Online.

To use the online system, ask your practice's User Administrator to attach you to the store on PCSE Online. This generates an account for you as a performer. You can then create your own individual log on and password to access the online Performers List system.

If your Contract Holder has not assigned a User Administrator, please ask them contact PCSE on 0333 014 2884 to set this up.
