On 22 January 2019 the NES Governance Group provided information to PHOs as follows:
The NES Governance Group has now received progress reports from PMS vendors and has agreed to a revised start date of 1 April 2019.
Deferment to 1 April 2019 has the following advantages:
February 2019 CBF register submissions for Quarter Two 2019 (due 28 February 2019) should continue as usual. The registers will be retained as a backup source of enrolment data during Quarter Two 2019 should anything unexpected happen during the transition to the NES.
I previously advised that member practices will need to disenrol their ineligible patient prior to the end of February 2019.
As practices generally submit their registers to the PHOs by the 15th of the month the disenrolment will need to be completed prior to 15 February 2019.
