It is a condition of employment in General Practice that you registered with the National Medical Performers List.
This needs to be initiated by you prior to joining the GP training programme and well in advance of starting your post (it takes at least 6 weeks). The Regulations require all specialty trainees to be on the performers list within three months of commencing their training.
If you are not on the performers list you cannot work in General Practice.
The National Performers List Application Form, can be found on the link below, along with the guidance on the completion of the applications and supporting documentation requirements: https://www.performer.england.nhs.uk/Documents
The form must be completed electronically along with an electronic signature. The form must be submitted to Primary Care Support England (PCSE) PCSE.email@example.com. DO NOT SUBMIT ANY OTHER SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS AT THIS STAGE. The email subject box must state NPL1 Form, this will avoid any un-necessary delay in processing to the correct department.
Once the application is received by PCSE, they will alert a local manager (within relevant area), who will contact you to arrange a face to face appointment to check your identity and to check all of your supporting documents. At the face to face appointment you must provide original documentation, along with photocopies of each.
