Document Can I add a performer to a contract if they carry out private dental treatment only?

No, Compass is a system making payments to NHS contracts and recording those NHS performers working on those contracts only. There is no facility to differentiate between a private and NHS performer, therefore the inclusion of private performers could cause confusion for the Commissioners (Area Teams / Local Health Boards).

Performers who solely provide private dentistry should therefore not be included on Compass. If an NHS performer stops doing NHS work and starts doing private work only, they should be ended as a performer on Compass.
private, part private, not nhs
