NHS BSA Compass

The NHS Business Services Authority is a Special Health Authority and an Arms Length Body of the Department of Health which provides a range of critical central services to NHS organisations, NHS contractors, patients and the public.
Amongst the services they provide are:

  • Management of the NHS Pension Scheme in England and Wales.
  • Payments to dentists for work undertaken on NHS contracts which involves processing approximately 44 million dental forms and payments totalling over £2.5 billion in England and Wales.

General Dental Practitioners are able to use NHS BSA Compass Portal to obtain information about NHS work and payment.

Once you have been included in the National Performer List and have been given a Performer number, you will be able to sign up for access to the Compass Dental Portal, from which you will be able to view and download monthly statements of your NHS work output.  You will need to upload these statements to your E-Portfolio.
