Forms must be submitted by 20th of the month before payment is due to start. For placements starting in August or February, the deadline is 10th of the previous month.

The Wessex TG form also forms forms part of the application process for the National Medical Performers List and it is essential that it is submitted before the start of the trainee's first placement in a GP training practice.


Joining the GP National Medical Performers List:

All GP Trainees must apply to join the Medical Performers List before they start their first placement in a practice. This is a professional requirement and trainees who have not submitted their application will not be permitted to start work in the practice and are at risk of not being paid during this time.  A note regarding professionalism will be added to the Educators’ Notes on the e-portfolio to be available for the ARCP panel.

The Wessex TG form is part of the application process for the Medical Performers' List. HEE Wessex will provide their NHS England local office a list of trainees starting their first placement in a GP practice. NHS England will confirm their inclusion on the Medical Performers List to Primary Care Support England (PCSE) who will then add these trainees to the Performers List, and will notify each trainee by email once this has happened. Trainees will continue to have the three month period of grace from the start of their placement for their application for the Performers List to be approved.

Where a trainee has previously been subject to or is currently undergoing any fitness to practise proceedings or investigation, NHS England will usually require the trainee to complete a NPL1 application form and additional documentation. This will be reviewed by the NHS England local office and be considered by a clinical panel. NHS England will then confirm the trainee's inclusion on the Medical Performers List to PCSE who will notify the trainee as described above.
