Transfer of practice within the same locality (salaried GP or GP Partner)

Once PCSE has received the completed NPL3 change notification form, PCSE will

  • Email the performer’s current (leaving) practice to confirm the change, request  leaving date and patient reallocation details (if required).
  • Email the performer’s new (joining) practice to confirm the change, request joining date and number of sessions the performer will be working in the practice
  • Where the movement affects a practice’s contract (i.e. results in a contract variation), PCSE will also request by e-mail that the relevant commissioning team confirms they:
      • are aware of the change, and
      • approve amendments can be made to the partnership
  • If the practice is single handed, PCSE will also request (by email) confirmation of who will be providing cover/taking over the practice from the commissioning team

Estimate of GP NHS Pensionable Profits/Pay

As soon as the performer receives confirmation that the change has been finalised, the new practice is required to submit an Estimate of GP NHS Pensionable Profits/Pay via the PCSE online form (select GP pensions as the subject enquiry type). The practice should state in the correspondence that the estimate is being submitted in relation to a recent performers list change.
