GP Change of Status with PCSE

GP registrars and Dental Foundation Trainees are already on the Performers List for England when they conclude their training. Dental Foundation Trainees and GP Registrars can continue to work whilst their status change is being processed by PCSE.

General Practitioners

GP registrars who have newly qualified can work as they are on the performers list and will be showing on the performers list website. The individual can show they are qualified by producing their certificate of completed training (CCT) This is also reflected on the GMC register which any employer can check if they so wish.

  1. GP Trainees legally cease to be trainees when the GP registrar achieves their CCT and the GMC register is updated.
  2. NHS England policy requires GP Trainees to provide evidence that they have completed their training and to update their status in PCSE Online, enabling PCSE to update their status on the performers list. If the GP registrar has evidenced this, they have fulfilled their obligations under the regulations and NHS England policy.
  3. The change in status on the Performers List itself does not require NHS England Medical Director (MD) / Responsible Officer (RO) approval as this is a routine administrative process.
  4. During this period of time, and in the event that an enquiry regarding their status is received from either the recently qualified trainee or an organisation wishing to use their service, MDs or their delegated officers should assure themselves that the trainee has completed their training by either checking the GMC register, and or liaising with HEE if they are a GP registrar. If the MD or their delegated officer can assure themselves via this route, there should be no reason why the trainee should not be permitted to practise independently whilst the administrative change in status is undertaken.
