Primary Care Support England (PCSE) Update on Pensions

GP Pensions 2024/25 Estimates Deadline

NHS Pensions has extended the deadline for the submission of 2024/25 GP Pensions Estimates. Estimates must be completed and submitted by 31 March 2024.

PCSE is in the process of updating PCSE Online with the 2024/25 estimate form and we will be in touch directly with Practices to let them know when they can login and submit their 2024/25 estimate.

GP employment changes awaiting approvals

If you are a Principal or Salaried GP and need to update your employment details, this is done using PCSE Online. Part of the process requires approval from either the ‘PL Practice Manager’ or the Commissioner who will receive an email from PCSE asking them to approve the change in PCSE Online.

  • If the status of your change is showing as ‘Waiting for Details’ this means that it is pending approval by the person at your practice with the ‘PL Practice Manager’ role on PCSE Online. Please speak to them to progress your request.
  • If the status of your request is showing as ‘Awaiting NHSE’, this means that it is with your Commissioner awaiting approval. Commissioners will acknowledge this change once the appropriate contractual changes have been made. Please speak to them to progress your request.

You can view the full process of completing an employment change here. Once your employment change has been approved, the status will change to assigned.
