Deadline extension for COVID-19 workforce form submissions

If you hold a GDS or PDS contract, the deadline to submit your COVID-19 workforce forms has now been extended until 11:59pm on Monday 14 June 2021. This is a firm deadline and there will be no further extension. 

You must complete your COVID-19 workforce forms as part of your income protection arrangements with NHS England and NHS Improvement. Failure to submit might result in contractual sanctions being issued by your local commissioning team. 

How to submit your COVID-19 workforce forms

For each of your contracts you need to complete your COVID-19 workforce forms for each month from April 2020. To submit, log in to Compass and:

  • open the COVID-19 menu
  • select 'Workforce Data Collection' option 
  • select 'Start New Form'

A workforce form can be completed with zero entries for contracts held at the same practice location if these contracts are for reporting purposes only. If you receive a paid service, a workforce form should be completed for each contract (this includes CDS contracts).
