New policy for applications to the Performers Lists

NHSE/I has published a new policy for applications to the Medical Performers List (MPL), which introduces a number of changes including the removal of duplicated checks, introduction of more nuanced support tailored to the specific needs of the performer, and confirmation that performers are able to increase or decrease their scope of work whilst on the MPL.

It is hoped by NHSE/I and the BMA that the new policy will bring positive changes for GPs in England.

It is anticipated that it will allow a quicker application process due to the reduced documentary evidence required, and that the majority of applicants will be able to be included on the list with an education and/or clinical support plan and a probationary flag. These applicants will not require consideration by a Performers List Decision Panel.

The document provides some useful flowcharts detailing the stages of the new process.

 

If you have any questions or feedback on implementation of the new policy please contact info.ret@bma.org.uk
