Following a number of similar queries, PCSE have created a Practice Manager Guide to Pensions. It may be  useful and quicker to check this if you have an issue before raising with PCSE.

From 1st June 2021, PCSE launched the new online service for payments and pensions.

This will allow Practices and GPs working in General Practice to access a range of new services to help manage their payments and pensions administration.

PCSE have created a number of useful guides for the new GP Pensions & Payments service and are available here and ‘How to’ videos on thier YouTube channel.

They have also created FAQs for this service that can be seen on their "help page"

They have also produced a guide for " Contacting PCSE for GP Payments queries"

April 2023 - PCSE have added a further useful tool - Estimate and Salary Change Guide - includes a video demo

For any issues with payments, PCSE advise calling their customer support service (0333 014 2884) in the first instance rather than log the query online.
