Document What is a performer number?

A performer number is a random six-digit number allocated to every qualified NHS dentist. Your performer number will remain the same throughout your NHS career, regardless of any breaks in service you may have. A performer number can begin with any digit from 1 – 9.

After you have registered as a dentist with the General Dental Council (GDC) and have applied to work for a Commissioner (Area Team / Local Health Board), you will be created as an NHS performer on the Compass system and a performer number will be generated and issued.
